High rating for cleverness! I skipped the butter because I was making a beverage anyway. Didn't miss it. This recipe makes exactly 1 cup of liquid.
I just saw this recipe today in a Heloise Hints newspaper article. She said the consistency and texture will not be exactly the same but it will work. I'm glad to see it posted so I can save it to my recipes!
I used this to make a chai tea concentrate and it worked like a charm. I didn't add nearly the same amount of sugar b/c of the spices I was using. Def a keeper!
I was also in the middle of baking a pie and realized I didnt have any condensed milk - this reciepe is great - don't think I'll ever buy it again!
Worked like a champ! I had already started a recipe and thought I had the condensed milk.OHHHHHH . Zaar comes through again!
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first, but I was desperate... I needed it to make Kittencal's Easy Cream Cheese Apple Dessert (Almost Cheesecake!). I have to admit- it was a success. I wasn't sure if it would set the same as the commercial stuff, but it did. I am a convert. This is much easier, and cheaper than the stuff in a can, and you know what's in it. Next time I need condensed milk, I'll be trying it with Splenda and see how it works out.
I needed just 1/2 a cup of sweetened condensed milk for a recipe and didn't want to open a can & just use part of it. I read from another reviewer that this recipe made 1 cup so I took her word for it & halfed it to use in the recipe. I didn't measure, but the recipe turned out perfect so it must have been close. I have made the recipe many times and I could not tell the difference between this time and when I have made w/ the canned stuff. Also GREAT for the budget!
This was a perfect replacement. I don't ever see the need to go buy sweetened condensed milk again. Thanks!
Great, easy, and good. Thanks Ann for posting a cheater! We need those recipes in our budgets! :)
I don't keep much sweetened condensed milk on hand, always have evaporated, regular and dry. This is great! I used "I Can't Believe it is Butter Margarine Spread" and it worked. Great Recipe. Thanks.
