    I've got a recipe to make it if you ask nicely.
    A minute at the till, a lifetime on the bill.

    I've never seen supermarket branded C.M.
    Fussel's brand is often cheapest and I usually buy a few tins if I see it on special offer.
    Haven't seen it for a while though.
    Looks like you might have to pay the £1.20 !
    Perhaps thats why you have had lots of view and no replies - we all wanted to know where to get it cheaper!

    Possibly Sunday evening isn't the best time to ask - not many people off to the shops atm

    Here's the recipe to try, it's simple to make and a good substitution.


    Sweetened Condensed Milk

    180ml boiling water
    85g unsalted butter (not marge)
    200g caster sugar
    320g powdered milk

    Combine all ingredients in electric blender until thick- approx 2 minutes.

    Store in refrigerator.

    Err yeah sorry, I think that's evaporated.

    But like Claire asked, what's the difference?

    Evap milk is thin,about as thick as single cream,where condensed milk is thick and creamy and very sweet,boiled in the tin can be turned into carmel.

    some recipes need evap and some need condensed.

    Does anyone know where i can buy condensed milk for less than £1.20 a tin (sainsburys) as I use quite a lot in baking. Does anyone apart from carnation make it?
