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 is an economical substitute for Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
Combine water and sugar in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Pour mixture in blender. Add butter or margarine. Blend on low, gradually adding milk powder. Blend on medium until smooth. Makes about 3 1/2 cups, enough to replace 4 (14-oz.) cans of sweetened condensed milk.

I am wondering how you store this. I like the idea of having extra "cans" on hand but how long will this keep in the refrigerator? Can you freeze the extra in individual containers or do you need to use this right away? (07/23/2010)

How funny! I was going through my mom's recipe box last night and came across her recipe for this that is about 30-35 years old and was thinking I should post it-and here it is in my next email! (07/23/2010)
Old recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk.
Put all ingredients in blender and process until smooth. This equals 1 can.

What is the recipe for Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk? Thanks.
Combine all ingredients. Heat to boiling. Cook until thick, about 15 to 20 minutes. Equals 1 can. (06/27/2009)
Put in blender in order given. Blend for one minute until well mixed. Pour into container and store in refrigerator. Make sure to cool before using.
Yields 1 1/3 cups or equal to 1 can.

This makes the equivalent of one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk.
Heat a bowl of water in the microwave until it is very hot (or use tap water if you can get it steaming hot).
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add the hot water and beat with an electric mixer or wire whisk until smooth.
Note: This should be made as you need it and will not store well. One recipe equals one can of store bought sweetened condensed milk.

If you ever find that you do not have sweetened condensed milk in your pantry, the substitute taste practically the same as the canned stuff.
