Sweet milk is fresh milk as opposed to sour milk which people used to make cakes with, and buttermilk. It has no added sugar and is what you buy to drink every day. It is just called milk today.

Lilac is correct. Sweet milk is a termed used many years ago, when many families used everything they had, & when milk became 'soured'or 'clabbered', instead of pitching it, they added it in baking. Some recipes still call for it today. "Sweet' milk, is simply fresh, unsoured milk.

I found an old recipe of my mothers from about 65 years ago and it calls for sweet milk in a refrigerated bread dough recipe. I know that this is not sweetened condensed milk and a friend also told me that it was not evaporated milk either.


So what is it? I would really appreciate the help. My mother has been dead for about 5 years and my mom's sisters all before her. So I have no one to ask. Thank you.
