Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk
If I had a dime for every time I have looked in my pantry for a can of sweetened condensed milk to find that I am totally out, I would be a wealthy woman. A few weeks back, I was making some Homemade No Churn Oreo Cookie Ice Cream and did not have any sweetened condensed milk. I was totally bummed because it was too late to run to the store. What was a girl to do? It was time to make some Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk so I could finish off the kids cold treat and get it in the freezer.
Since making sweetened condensed milk only requires dry milk, sugar and butter, I had everything on hand. I always like to keep my pantry stocked with dry milk because it has come in handy many of times.
1 cup Instant Non Fat Dry Milk
2/3 cup Sugar
1/2 cup boiling Water
1/4 cup melted Butter
Combine all ingredients in a blender and run until mixed (scrape down sides as needed).
Can be stored in sealed jar in refrigerator for a week.
I was amazed how close this homemade version turned out. It tastes just like the stuff we buy in the cans. Plus it saved this girl from a trip to the store. Having recipes for simple homemade ingredients is perfect. Do you have a favorite pantry staple recipe that you use often when you run out?
