Condensed Milk Recipe vs. Evaporated Milk Recipe

Condensed milk or evaporated milk will make our cakes taste better? The answer as always lies in the detail or rather in the sugar.

Let’s get the basics straight first. In the US we can buy condensed milk and evaporated milk off the shelf pretty easily. Both are essentially just concentrated Milks that’s 60% of its water content

has been evaporated. The only difference between the two is that condensed milk is sweetened with sugar while evaporated milk is just plain concentrated milk.

In recipes we can use them interchangeably without any problems as their characteristics are the same except that one is sweeter than the other.

So basically when we are making sugar free condensed milk we are really talking about making evaporated milk.
