This works wonderfully for my recipes and I always have it on hand and make it fresh not to mention its cheaper than buying it by the can. I do agree that its a bit buttery but I use just 1 Tbsp of butter and it comes out perfectly. Thanks for posting!

Great recipe! Much cheaper than store bought, and it works just as well, i needed some in an ice cream recipe and I'll use this from now on.

Not bad at all! The only suggestion I'd like to offer after having tried this out and tasting it, is to cut down by a tbsp. on the butter. With 2 tbsps., the milk becomes very buttery in taste and it was a bit too much for my taste buds to handle. Otherwise, this is a great and handy cooking tip! Thank you very much for sharing it.
