Since many of you will probably be making some pumpkin pies sometime during the next week or so, I thought I would post an easy substitute for evaporated milk. This is so easy to make. Did you know that evaporated milk is simply fresh milk that has had about 60% of its water content removed? Knowing this little fact makes this recipe make sense! You are just mixing up a concentrated milk mixture using non-fat dry milk and water! Here is the recipe…
- 2/3 cup non-fat dry milk powder
- 3/4 cup water
Mix the water and dry milk powder together. Then use in place of evaporated milk in any recipe.
Yield: 1 cup (8 ounces)
Note: Since most pumpkin pie recipes I have seen call for a 12 oz. can of evaporated milk, you will need 1 1/2 cups of this homemade evaporated milk substitute. Simply double the recipe and you will have enough to make 1 batch of pumpkin pies….triple the recipe and have enough for 2 batches!
