Substitutions for Evaporated or Condensed Milk in Pumpkin Pie

I don't have any canned milk and want to make fresh pumpkin pie. The recipe it calls for it. Is there a way to use regular milk instead?

Replace in this recipe below, each 1/4 cup of nonfat dry milk with 1 cup of milk. For the recipe below, if I am doing my math right, that would equal out to eight cups of regular milk if you are substituting 1 cup milk for 1/4 cup powdered milk.

I have always used just regular milk in my pumpkin pie. I just follow the recipe on the back of the can and substitute the same amount of whole or 2% milk.


It makes a little bit lighter pie. But it is really good.
