Let’s talk about condensed milk. Specifically the size of the tins. I’m sure, when I was younger, you could get a tin that was 7oz/200g or thereabouts. Often referred to as a ‘small tin of condensed milk’ in my recipes. That size doesn’t seem to exist anymore (certainly not here in the US) so I’ve often found myself with half a tin of condensed milk left over.

Now, you could always make double the quantity of whatever it is that you’re baking.

Or you could make a fancy coffee or cocktail with it.

Or, you know, you could just take a spoon and finish it off…

Anyway, should you find yourself in this situation and are looking for something else to bake, I have added a new category to my recipes called ‘Half a tin of condensed milk’ (yes, it’s a little long, but it is suitably descriptive). Search for this and you will find several recipes that will use up the rest of that tin.

I hope this is helpful. And thank you to the blog follower whose comment led to this new category!
