I love using this. It is a great substitute and so much cheaper than going to the store to get it. I use a lot of this during the Christmas season making my cookies and bars. I have this in a safe place so I know where it is at all times!

This is the one to use! I made it because I was in a pinch and didn't want to go to the store, but I will definately do it again...much less expensive than the canned version. Thanks you!

Went to make a key lime pie from the key limes abundance in my yard and was missing sweetened condensed milk. I was skeptical, however it worked well.

I used this recipe b/c the others I came across called for items I didn't have. I thought it turned out really well! So glad this substitute recipe was posted! Thank you!

Thanks for saving the day. I had planned to make my own condensed milk but then realized I didn't have the ingredients for most of the recipes. This worked perfectly. I cooked it until it had a slightly caramel flavor which will add a great flavor to my Tres Leches Cake (Alton Brown). Thanks again!

Thanks for posting. Like many others, I found myself making something that called for sweetened condensed milk only to find I didn't have any. This was quick, easy, and tastes great. Like andypandy, I made Iced Coffee with the Eagle Brand, and I think I would actually like it better with recipe.

I agree with MommyMakes, this is far more superior in looks and taste to the one made with powdered milk. I used the 14 ounce can full fat evaporated milk with 1 7/8 cup white sugar, and I did cook it four or five minutes. Don't overcook as it will taste like brown sugar caramel flavour, which I did, but worked in my recipes just fine. leftovers in the fridge thickened upon cooling. I used this in Rice Pudding in a Rice Cooker and Iced Coffee Worked out cheaper than Eagle Brand and just as good.

Used this in my recipe for brownie trifle, and then again when making iced coffee. Tastes just like the 'real' thing. Thanks for posting!
