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.


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oleo or margarine
  • 1 cup powdered milk


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.

Servings: 1 cup
Time: 12 Minutes Preparation Time
5 Minutes Cooking Time

  • 1 cup instant non-fat powdered milk
  • 1/3 cup boiled water
  • 3 Tbsp. melted butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • splash of vanilla, optional


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.

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.

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!

Mock Condensed Milk

Mix together in your blender: 2 1/4 cups Milk Powder, 1/4 cup warm water, and 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Pour into covered container and refrigerate until cold and thick. This amount is equal to 1 can Eagle Brand.

Does anyone have a recipe for making condensed milk?

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!
