  • Check out the question that was asked before -- certainly looks like you can! (Just dilute it first!)

  • This question was closed as a duplicate of a question regarding condensed milk, which it isn't. In the US condensed milk is always sweetened. After searching 100s of results on Amazon, I have come to believe that any canned milk labeled as "condensed" in English is, in fact, "sweetened condensed milk". Some labels omit the word "sweetened" in the title, but further reading shows that these products are the same syrupy milk product that is common in North, Central, and South America.

1 Answer 1


In order to substitute evaporated milk for regular milk, you need to reconstitute the milk according to package instructions. Usually, that's a 1 to 1 ratio. So you would use 1/4 cup each of evaporated milk and water. (double check the label, other concentrations may exist)
