Leche Asada, Peru's "roasted milk", is an ancient Peruvian dessert and might already have been prepared during Colonial times. Being probably the poor people's version of the famous Crème brûlée, this creamy, sweet and delicious dessert is surely simple, but leaves a lasting impression on everyone who tried it. Peruvian comfort food at its best!
Even though nowadays often canned sweetened condense milk and evaporated milk is found on the ingredient list of lots of recipes, the only few ingredients a good Leche Asada needs is fresh whole milk, eggs, sugar and probably some vanilla or cinnamon. The Peruvian Leche Asada has no caramel and is characterized by its browned top. It's served lukewarm or cold in glasses or small ramekins.
The specified quantities in the ingredients list are sufficient for 4 middle sized glasses or 6 ramekins.
