I have more than just evaporated milk substitute, check out more recipes at the end of the page.
If you ran out of evaporated milk, just use the following recipe as a substitute. It works beautifully. Just stock up on instant dry milk powder when it is on sale and save a chunk of change too.
Make Your Own Evaporated Milk
1/3 cup nonfat instant dry milk powder
6 TBS water
Mix well. This is equivalent to 1/3 cup of canned evaporated milk.
For 1 cup:
1 cup nonfat instant dry milk powder
18 TBS water (1 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
