Otto’s Nostalgic Dulce de Leche Crepe

Chef Otto Romer’s mother made him these crepes throughout his childhood in Venezuela. A two-day affair, she’d make the dulce de leche the day before, and then rise early to make the batter and cook the crepes, sending him to school with this sweet treat in his lunch box. Without a kitchen torch, she heated a dinner fork over the gas stove and used that to caramelize the sugar on top.

Inspired by this nostalgic childhood treat, Otto simplifies the recipe slightly by using our one-ingredient [link https://www.chefsteps.com/activities/sous-vide-dulce-de-leche sous vide dulce de leche], which can be prepared days, weeks, or even months in advance.
