I do a lot of baking and always seem to be out of those little cans of sweetened condensed milk. So, off to the internet to find a recipe to make my own and not have to buy anymore. I found a recipe on Allrecipes.com that was submitted by cdicke1. I want to record it here so I will know where it is when I need it!
Homemade Condensed Milk
Recipe from AllRecipes.com
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups white sugar
4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
Pour boiling water into blender container. Add margarine and sugar. Blend carefully due to the hot water . Blend until combined. Add the dry milk powder 1 cup at a time, blending after each addition. Store in refrigerator and use where a recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk.
1 1/3 cups equals one 14 ounce can
Note: I always keep some dry milk powder in the pantry, great for emergencies and it does not go bad. Now I have another use for the milk powder.
