Sweetened Condensed Milk Recipe – Homemade, Easy and Simple
We all love to make cakes and ice-creams. We are so excited about that and we start thinking only about the flavors, tastes, what to add, what not to add, how long to bake, how long to stir – so much goes in our mind.
And once we have decided, we scout for all the ingredients, we go out to store, we buy them all – cocoa powder, cream, baking powder and what not. In this, there is something else that we buy too –
“SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK”
We buy this ingredient so many times, that we don’t stop to think that may be, may be we can do this at home 🙂
I believe the reason for not making this at home is not about difficulty, but thinking that this is not a recipe by itself.
It actually makes total sense to make this at home. Not only for money savings, but you get to make it with no preservatives, you decide how much you need to make, and you know how sweet you want it to be.
What is Sweetened Condensed Milk?
As the name implies, this is milk which has been sweetened, and condensed to a form where most of the water content in the milk has been removed. This results in forming a thick milky syrup with a higher shelf life and awesome taste-adding attribute to whichever recipe this is added to. Where do you think the ice-cream gets its sweet taste? 🙂
