    Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk


    Recipe Description
    This is a 'from scratch' recipe for canned sweetened condensed milk. (The brand name equivalent would be Eagle Brand)

    Its so easy, I may never buy a can again.

    This recipe makes the equivalent of one 14oz can

    (BTW I know this isn't a "sauce" but this seemed to be the most fitting category as its similar to a condiment/sauce)
    Preparation Steps:
    Boil water - or in my case, turn on the kettle and measure out the water once its done boiling.

    Take out either the blender OR a heat-safe bowl and wire whisk. (I don't think this is a big enough job to warrant a blender and a whisk and bowl are much easier to wash, IMO.)
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    5-10 minutes
    Ingredients:
    1c instant non-fat powdered milk
    1/3c boiling water
    3tbsp melted margarine or butter
    2/3c granulated sugar
    splash of vanilla (optional)
    tiny pinch of salt (optional)
    Serves:
    equal to 1 x 14oz can
    Directions:
    BOWL METHOD
    Place all the ingredients in a heat-safe bowl and whisk until well mixed and very smooth.

    BLENDER METHOD
    Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

    It will be a thinner consistency then the canned stuff but if you let it sit, I find it thickens up. After refrigeration, I find it to be thicker as well.

    It should last a few weeks in the fridge, however each time I've made it, I've used it right away or within a day or two.

    Thanks for this recipe. I was planning on looking for something like this soon. I certainly don't want to spend extra money to buy something that I can easily make.
