Forgot to get a can of condensed milk for your recipe, don't panic. You may have the ingredients in your pantry to make a homemade version. This page contains homemade condensed milk recipes.
I bake a lot during the holidays and often use canned or sweet milk. My neat little neighbor lady gave this recipe to me that her mother gave to her. It is a money saver, especially since I always have a box of powdered milk in the house on stand-by.
Place first three ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour into blender, slowly add powdered milk as blending. Blend until smooth. Keep refrigerated.
Great for use in Pumpkin Pies or any recipe that requires canned or sweet milk.

This sounds like a really good recipe but what is the difference between oleo and margarine? Can butter be used?
Boil water. Blend all ingredients in a heat safe bowl, use blender to mix. It will be thinner at first than actual canned stuff. Refridgerate for a while and it thickens up. Lasts about 2 weeks. Better than store bought.
Makes about 14 ounces.

With the holidays coming sooner than we think, it is time to make those delicious recipes that call for Eagle Brand condensed milk. But it is really expensive to buy. So make your own with this simple recipe. I guarantee it works as well as the real thing!
I have a recipe almost like yours but the one I have calls for three tablespoons of melted butter also. It taste just like the real thing. I never buy it from the store anymore.

Well, let's see. How about you don't have any on hand, and don't want to drive to the store right then. Or, maybe you'd just like to make a less expensive version, since a can is over $2 where I live.
P.S. I also use 3 T. melted butter in mine.
My husband is a diabetic and I want to make pies sugar free as possbile. I agree with you I would rather buy the good stuff.
I want to prepare condensed milk analogue (non dairy). To replace the milk fat component I am thinking of using vegetable fat with some milk flavor. How do I replace skimmed milk powder or non fat dry milk with something, a non dairy component?
You can try using powdered coffee creamers instead of powdered milk. Many are non dairy when you read the labels.
Does anyone have a recipe for making condensed milk?

sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/3 cups equals one 14 ounce can
For (unsweetened) condensed milk, I would think you could add powdered milk to regular milk (instead of water) and mix as directed on the powdered milk container. Then your milk would be twice as strong. Good luck!
