"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."
"I tried this in Zewbiedoo's Ice Cream (no Eggs) recipe #93725, and it worked fine. I didn't even bother to use the blender, just mixed everything together with a whisk. This was particularly convenient because I had to halve the recipe to fit my ice cream maker. Since I used this recipe I had no leftover condensed milk to worry about. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us."
"I don't know why this has not been reviewed before. If no one has tried this I would encourage you to do so. It is so simple to make and it is just like the "bought" stuff only much cheaper. I'll never buy it again. Thanks Ann"
"I admit that I did not think this recipe would be similar in consistency to condensed milk, but it certainly is. I added a tsp of vanilla to give it more flavour but as written it is still good. Thanks for the great "substitution" recipe."
