Takes only 5 minutes to prepare – Toasting bread with butter, raining it with milk and some orange zest! Sweet & refreshing! Definitely decadent.
Prepare this when you want to have it right away. I am saying this because the condensed milk would melt on the butter toasted bread delicious! Orange zest is fresh to have as soon as you grate them. I was thinking as I was making it that it would be really sweet but trust me it was perfect!
Everybody loves quick and simple recipes. Kids would love this recipe because of the taste combination and sweetness. You can make this in 5 minutes in the morning or as a snack. Perfect for a breakfast I would say! as I made this twice already.
White bread lightly toasted with just butter is so good on its own but just a drizzle of this sweetened condensed milk is delicious. We do not want to have this on a daily basis; it might be sweet and then would get bored on few days. Indulge once in a while with this sweet toast with refreshing orange zest. I always love sweetened condensed milk. It is so delicious. I can take a spoonful of the sweetened condensed milk from the jar 🙂 Not more than a spoon but for sure. And most times I eat Nutella 😉 from the jar. Many does that 😉 I am sure!!! If you have this stored, there are lots of quick recipes you can do with this. I have already made a coconut ladoo/balls, saffron coconut Fudge/Burfi using sweetened condensed milk. I even made a carrot ladoo using the same.
I used the store bought sweetened condensed milk. But I have made this sweetened condensed milk many times. It will thicken when you keep it in fridge, but it won’t be as thick as store bought but surely it is of same good taste. I had the leftover condensed milk I used for carrot coconut ladoo. I wanted to use for something quick and tasty. Here comes the recipe for it. I also prepared a recipe note for sweetened condensed milk. You can always prepare and use it later.
Sweetened Condensed Milk recipe:
It will make around 1 cup
Whole milk – 2 cups
Granulated sugar – 3/4 cup
Vanilla extract – ¼ tsp
Take a heavy bottomed sauce pan, mix together milk and sugar. Warm until steaming. Lower the heat and simmer for 2 – 2 ½ hours or until it thickens slightly.
When reduced to half, stir in the vanilla extract. Switch off and store in an airtight container and cool it. Keep it in fridge for 2 weeks.
Vanilla extract is optional here.
Vegan Note: You can use coconut milk to make the sweetened condensed milk. You can skip the butter and toast it plain 🙂
- Butter – 1 tbsp
- Bread slices – 2
- Fruits – few (I used strawberry)
- Orange Zest – 2 tsp
- Sweetened condensed milk – drizzle as per your taste
- Take a skillet and heat 1 tbsp of the butter on medium heat until melted.
- Place the bread slices into the butter and toast it for a minute until golden brown. Now flip the bread and toast for another minute. Switch off.
- Place the toasted bread on serving plates with some fruits. Drizzle condensed milk over the toasted bread (generously). Grate some orange zest on it and serve immediately.
