I’ve got to confess, my friends. This Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Bake is sinfully scrumptious breakfast.

But wait. First of all, I might have made too many concessions for the last year. I made them when I was talking about donuts. And being addicted to buying food props.
Second of all, saying that this Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Bake is one fantastic breakfast isn’t the confession. It’s a fact. I hope you agree on that.
My real confession is that I love dulce de leche. I would even say I adore it, if it’s appropriate to say this about food.
It’s been a long way – as far as I remember, I have always had a thing for caramelized condensed milk. Perhaps, I was born this way – craving for dulce de leche. Once I even made a confession about how I almost ruined the kitchen while making dulce de leche at home. I was quite a kid if this counts as an excuse, though.

Before moving to Canada, I never tried this caramel spread made in Argentina. In my book, it’s the most delicious dulce de leche I’ve tried so far (Well, I try different spreads once in a while too).
However, if you search my blog, you won’t find a lot of recipes featuring dulce de leche. Why? Because I love dulce de leche.
Honestly, it’s the most dangerous thing in our house. Trust me, I’ve got a number of stories when I bought a jar (two or three) of this caramel spread to use it in cooking, but I never succeed cause it ended up…you know where!
Once I bought a jar of dulce de leche, and when we got home, the jar was immaculately clean! All that time the bags were in the trunk, so isn’t this a great mystery?

Talking about this Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Bake, I had been planning to make it since last fall when I first thought of this combo. Why so long? Do I really need to give you an answer? I remember at least 4 attempts to make this dish. Once I even got a large plastic container in the bulk store…well that happened twice. The first time I grabbed just a little to give it a try. The next time I took a huge plastic container (like a kilo) to make this oatmeal and to indulge myself as well. All right, it’s too embarrassing to continue!

Should I mention this Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Bake turned out stunning? It’s not just a delicious breakfast – it’s a dessert for your breakfast! I mean who would reject having a dessert for breakfast? Legit. Just keep saying to yourself: it’s breakfast, it’s breakfast; this is not a dessert at all! It’a a healthy breakfast. That should work.
The texture of this dish is similar to a bread pudding, moist and fluffy. You can add a bit less of liquid so you should get a cake (drier) texture.  Also, I added some bananas cause I had a very ripe one. That’s optional, but you know that: oats, caramel, and bananas. That’s more a mandatory ingredient.
To wrap this up, I hope you don’t have any doubts you’ve got to try this Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Bake. If you like dulce de leche, it’s a must.
Indeed, do you? Could you easily eat a jar of it? Is there an ingredient too dangerous to keep in your household? Have you ever got any food disappeared from your car?

  1. Ben – you are killing me here – I am a dulce de leche fan myself – I’ll just go right ahead and say I adore it – but, it doesn’t adore me – that lactose does a number on my belly – but I’m willing to pop a few extra Lactaid pills and chow down on this bake! Fantastic job, my friend! Hey – if you moved down here and became my neighbor, I will supply you with all the dulce de leche you can eat if I can stop by and grab some of your treats?! :)

  2. I don’t really think loving dulce de leche is a confession, Ben… because all sane people LOVE dulce de leche. So what you are really saying is that you are sane. ;) Loving this oatmeal bake!! Now THIS is totally worth getting out of bed for! Dulce de leche in breakfast form? Genius! Gimme dat! Cheers, buddy!

  3. Ahhhh! When I read the recipe’s name, of course, I knew it was on the sweeter side of life – however – at first glance, I thought the cooked bananas were tortellini! hahaha! I couldn’t be more wrong! I need this oatmeal in my life! So warm and cozy and your colors totally convey that! Delicious!

  4. You are quite the funny guy, I always enjoy reading your posts and your humor Ben. I guess the First Step is admitting you have a problem right? Maybe theres a program for this dulce de leche addiction of yours!
    This is just a beauty and I’m sorry, but this would have to be a dessert for me – wow!

  5. I had no idea about your dulce de leche addiction, Ben! But I get it…that stuff is dangerously delicious. Whenever I make tasty desserts around here, we either have to give it away or freeze it so that we don’t just eat it all for dinner. But I’m thinking I can get behind this oatmeal bake. Dessert for breakfast? Count me in! Hey, we could eat a slice of the quiche I made today for breakfast followed by a slice of this oatmeal bake. It’s like a well-rounded meal to start the day, right? Haha! :-)
