Out of sweetened condensed milk? Here's a homemade version that really works!
Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk
1-1/2 cups instant non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
In a 4 cup glass measure, mix dry milk and water until smooth. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Microwave at high power for 30 seconds to 1-1/2 minutes until hot but not boiling, stirring every 30 seconds. This equals to 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk and can be substituted for it in baking.
