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.

    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. :)

    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?

  8. Jeanine April 20, 2009 at 3:27 pm #

    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. :)
