Sweetened Condensed Milk

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk | The Baking Beauties


I don’t know if you are like me or not, but when I look through a recipe, I very often find that I am missing one or two of the ingredients that I need to make it. I found that the last time I was wanting to try a new granola bar recipe. It called for a can of sweetened condensed milk, which I didn’t have in my cupboard. So, I kept looking through my recipe books, and ended up finding a recipe for Sweetened Condensed Milk! I had no idea how easy it was to make it, and it did taste like the stuff in a can. Very simple to make, and you’ll be right back into baking in no time.

Sweetened Condensed Milk
It really does NOT get any easier than this, does it? You'll be done in less time than it takes to put your jacket on to head to the store. :)
  • 1 cup powdered skim milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  1. Place ingredients into blender. Blend until smooth. Makes equivalent to 1 can.

    That is so funny you put this on here! On Good Friday I needed this so a few minutes on the internet and BAM I found this exact recipe. I put it all in my magic bullet and it was amazing :) Thanks for posting this! – Crystal

    That is hilarious, Crystal! Unfortunately, my granola bars didn’t turn out great, but at least the sweetened condensed milk was good. :)

    You are right Jeanine..it can’t get simpler than that..thanks for the recipe! Why buy the expensive stuff when you can make it!

    Now I only have to add “powdered skim milk” to my cupboard … Because I don’t have that either 😉
    But it may come in handy.

    Betty, cheaper is better, right?? :) Plus, you can make it when you need it, and it’s the equivalent to one can, so it doesn’t get much better than that. :)
    Frix, I find that a lot of GF bread recipes call for powdered milk, so I now stock it. I’ve never had it in my cupboard before going gf.

    Can I make this dairy free?

    For dairy free, you could try substituting the powdered skim milk with powdered soy milk, which should be available at health food/natural food stores.

    Now I wonder just how many people will stop eating condensed milk now that they know the contents. I think the have changed the evaporated milk too, as we didn’t used to have to shake it. – Margaret

    Thank you for this info! I am often out of sweetened condensed milk and didn’t know I could substitute. Thanks!

    You’re welcome. I had no idea either until I was paging through my cookbooks. Learn something new everyday. :)
