I wonder who else is a condensed milk lover like me. I think it’s one of the best things in the world….gooey and sweet. I can even let it drizzle off my finger and just enjoy licking it…..wow…it’s just so good! There are so many ways to enjoy it but I think I’ll leave it for another day.
I grew up drinking condensed milk in a bottle. There was no milk powder then or maybe milk powder was just too expensive for us. There was definitely no fresh milk. My parents or elder brother or sister would add water to condensed milk in a bottle and shake it up before giving it to me. I didn’t even have a nice bottle. My milk bottle was made from a soft drink bottle with a bottle tit fitted to the mouth. Well, I still grew up well and I’m still very thankful and proud of my humble beginning.
By the way, I came across a very beautiful dessert a few days ago. I say it’s very beautiful because it uses quite a lot of condensed milk. It has to be good I thought. I wanted to make it. However I also thought to myself that I want it very delicious. To me it means that I need a good quality condensed milk
I’m disappointed with the condensed milk these days. There isn’t much flavour, not like those that I drank before. Well, I had to make it myself. I made some researches and then experimented with it last night. Yeah…..I got it! Immediately I made the beautiful dessert. For that, you have to come back tomorrow for it. Here I will share with you how to make your own condensed milk. It’s very easy.
1C boiling water
4C skimmed milk powder (or less)
Put the butter and sugar in the blender and then pour in boiling water. Blend it well. Then add the milk powder 1 cup at a time, blending after each cup until all is finished. That’s it! It may look very liquid but will thicken when it cools down. I love it thick. Use less milk powder if you like it runny like the ones you buy, maybe 3 cups of milk powder.
The flavour is way better than shop bought ones. Besides, you’ll save a lot of money making it yourself, if you are one like me who loves condensed milk. I’ll not buy again.
Oh yes, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for my wonderful dessert. My children said that it was one of the best.
