Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk (Throwback Thursday)
I have seen tons of sweetened condensed milk recipes that you have to cook on the stove. Who wants to do that? And in the reviews, they always say it gets clumpy and what not. This stuff NEVER clumps and you never have to cook this. PERFECT!
I have used it in things I have baked (like these Ooey Gooey Peanut Butter Brownies) and things that I have refrigerated (like this Peanut Butter Pie). It works great in both facets.
This makes approximately 1 1/2 cups or the equivalent of 1 (14 ounce) can.
1 cup sugar
1 cup dry powdered milk or 2 cups instant dry powdered milk (my grocery store only has instant so that is what I use)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon real butter
1. Put water and butter in a microwave dish and let it come to a boil in your microwave; about 45-60 seconds (keep an eye on it).
2. Put sugar and powdered milk in a blender or magic bullet. Add the boiling water butter mixture. Blend until combined, scraping down the sides if needed.
3. Use just as the normal sweetened condensed milk from a can.
