Dulces San Estanislao (Dulce de leche and almonds treat)

September is the month of the Patriotics days  in our country, and tomorrow the day that  we celebrate the Independence day.
Always  in this month we have a special recipe, this time I made a delicious recipe Dulces de San Estanislao (
and this curious name is a very old traditional sweet delicious dulce de leche with almonds.)
Still these treats are typical in some weddings.
The recipe is from the blog of my friend Claudia, Blog Dulcinea who has delicious recipes especially sweet treats.
With this recipe I participate in el Buscador  de recetas chilenas and you can see others chilean recipes there.

 1 tin  sweet condensed milk (boiled about 40 minutes)
or Dulce de leche
300 grams  grounded almonds
1 tablespoon of butter
5 yolks
 rainbow sprinkles

130 grams sugar glass
1 teaspoon of white egg
lemon juice (about  1 teaspoon of lemon juice)
If needed add some sugar glass, until you have a glaze to decorate the treats.

Put the condensed milk cooking in  a pot cover with wáter about 40 minutes  to obtain a blancmange.(If you use Dulce de leche  you don't have to boil)

Place the dish in a pan with butter, stirring until the mixture begins to boil, then add the ground almonds.
 Cook a couple of minutes, then add the yolks one by one and cook until the mixture comes away from the pan.

Put the mixture into a 20 cm square pan, previously buttered and let cool.

For the icing, put together all ingredients and stir until you have a mixture of good consistency and homogeneous.

Once this cold the dulce de leche and almonds batter , put the icing on top and decorate with rainbow sprinkles.
 Let dry and then cut into squares to serve.

Dulces San Estanislao

Ya estamos en este mes de Fiestas Patrias y con el grupo del Buscador de recetas chilenas siempre hacemos algo especial.
Esta vez hice unos dulces antiguos y deliciosos que se llaman Dulces San Estanislao del blog de mi amiga Claudia que tienes deliciosas  recetas, el log se llama Dulcinea.
Estos dulces antes se veían más en los matrimonios juntos con mazapanes y yemitas, son absolutamente deliciosos.


1 tarro de leche condensada (cocido si es en olla presión sólo 30 minutos) si ocupan deulce de leche o manjar no tienen que hervir el tarro, pero la idea es que el manjar sea más bien claro como manjar blanco.
300 gramos de almendras molidas
1 cucharada de mantequilla
5 yemas
mostacillas de colores


130 gramos de azúcar glass o azúcar flor
1 cucharadita de clara de huevo
jugo de limón (lo necesario para tener una pasta para decorar si se necesita agregar más azúcar)

Banana and apples meringue pudding

I find this banana and apples pudding in one of my old  cooking books, (white and black picture:) from a issue from here ("De mujer a mujer Diario La tercera)
You know I had some olds bananas but I hadn't biscuits to make the other pudding I love.
This was delicious too!


3 eggs
4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons caster sugar
4 bananas  in slices
3 apples peeled and  in slices
1 teaspoon orange zest
3/4 cup granulated sugar


Preheat the oven to 180 °
In a bowl beat the egg yolks and add the cream and icing sugar .
In a buttered pyrex pan put alternate layers of sliced ​​bananas and apples in slices and  sprinkle with orange zest. and then add the cream with the yolks over  the bananas and apples. -
Bake to  oven until set (about 10 minutes)


Make the sugar syrup for merengue

In a small pot over low heat, combine sugar and water. Swirl the pot over the burner to dissolve the sugar completely. Do not stir.  
Wash down the inside wall of the pot with a wet pastry brush. This will help prevent sugar crystals from forming around the sides, falling in and causing a chain reaction. Prepare your meringue.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the eggs whites and a pinch of salt on low speed until foamy,  increase the speed to medium, and beat until soft peaks form.

With this meringue decorate the banana and apples pudding and place in the oven again to brown slightly.

Budín de plátanos y manzanas con merengue

Este budín de plátanos y manzanas con merengue surgió porque buscaba algo para hacer con unos plátanos, manzanas siempre tengo, adoro las manzanas, y no tenía galletas para hacer ese otro budín que ya hice que es con galletas de champaña.
Resumen, esta receta es deliciosa y me encanta  ya que los materiales no son difíciles de tener en casa. Además  es fresco y delicioso.
 Esta receta es de un recorte que tenía en mis cuadernos de La tercera ( de Mujer a mujer super antiguo) y sinceramente esas recetas eran estupendas.


3 huevos
4 cucharadas de crema espesa (Nestlé u otra)
2 cucharadas de azúcar flor o azúcar glass
4 plátanos pelados y en rodajas
3 manzanas peladas y en láminas
1 cucharadita de cáscara de naranja rallada
3/4 taza de azúcar granulada

Calentar el horno a 180°c
En un bol batir las yemas y luego el azúcar flor , mezclar bien.
Aparte en una budinera o pyrex (como el de la foto) poner capas alternadas de manzanas en láminas y plátanos, hacer varias capas.
Al finar espolvorear la ralladura de naranja sobre la fruta.
A continuación vaciar la crema con las yemas sobre la fruta.
Llevar a horno hasta que se vea compacto y suave.

Preparar el almíbar de pelo
En una ollita combinar el azúcar granulada  con un poco de agua a fuego suave.
No revolver mientras se cocina hacer hasta que tenga la textura de almíbar de pelo (orar con una cucharita)
batir las claras con una pizca de sal a punto de nieve un merengue firme, agregar de a poco el almíbar de azúcar, batir bien hasta ver que el merengue esté listo.
Colocar sobre el pyrex con la fruta y llevar a horno por unos 5 minutos o hasta que esté dorado.
retirar y dejar enfriar antes de servir.
