A recipe requires Sweetened Condensed Milk? You don’t need to make a trip to a supermarket. Condensed Milk can be made by condensing Milk. Add Sugar to sweeten it and it is easy to adjust the sweetness as you make it. Instead of simmering Milk and Sugar in a saucepan, the microwave is the easiest method.
About 3 tablespoons
1/2 cup Milk
2 tablespoons Caster Sugar *more or less
- Place Milk and Sugar in a large heat-proof bowl and mix well. Heat for 1 to 2 minutes and mix well.
- Repeat this until desired texture is achieved. *Note: Milk get thicker when cooled.
- *Note: Using my 1100W microwave, it takes 6 to 7 minutes in total to make regular thickness Sweetened Condensed Milk. If you add extra Powdered Milk, it would be quicker.
This is interesting. Do you think I can make condensed coconut milk like this as well? As I am lactose intolerant. Thanks! Love your simple recipes!
Hi Gem. Thank you for your comment. I thought about the Condensed Coconut Milk and I couldn’t think of any reasons it can’t be done. Consistency of Coconut Milk is already fairly thick. It can be done even quicker!
Thank you! If I try, I will update you again. Thank you for all your recipes!
