How to Substitute Sweetened Condensed Milk for Evaporated Milk
To substitute sweetened condensed milk with evaporated milk, you will need to make some adjustments to your recipe.
Here’s how you can do it:
- Start by reducing the sugar in your recipe by about 3/4 cup for every 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk that you are replacing. This will help to balance out the sweetness of the sweetened condensed milk.
- Next, replace the sweetened condensed milk with an equal amount of evaporated milk. So, if your recipe calls for 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk, you will use 1 cup of evaporated milk.
3. Finally, you may need to make some adjustments to the consistency of your recipe. Sweetened condensed milk is thicker and more concentrated than evaporated milk, so you may need to add a little extra liquid to your recipe to compensate. This could be water, milk, or another liquid that is appropriate for your recipe.
It’s important to note that substituting evaporated milk for sweetened condensed milk will change the texture and consistency of your recipe, so you may need to experiment a bit to find the right balance. You may also need to adjust the cooking time or temperature to account for the different properties of the two types of milk.
