DIY Baking Staple: Sweetened Condensed Milk

DIY Sweetened Condensed Milk - LORAfied
Don’t you hate when a recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk and you don’t have it? Using only 4 ingredients, anyone can make it at home. This is one of my favorite money saving kitchen hacks!

DIY Baking Staple: Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 cups milk (can even use DF nut milk like coconut)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup) I use salted
1 tsp vanilla extract


Heat milk and sugar together, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Simmer on low, checking and stirring every few minutes until reduced by half.
(This part takes about 30 minutes, set a timer and make sure not to burn)

Add butter and vanilla, stir until melted and combined.


Store in refrigerator. Told you this was an easy one!
