In our previous episode I spoke about fake condensed milk that is flooding the markets around the world – if you missed it, the link is in the description below. Today I am going to show you how to make your own condensed milk at home using just milk and sugar.
Ingredients
  • 2¼ Cups full cream milk
  • ⅔ Cup White sugar + 1 Tbs
Instructions
  1. Since most recipes call for condensed milk on can measurements, this recipe will make the exact equivalent of a single can of condensed milk. If you need 2 cans, simply double up the recipe and adjust the timings accordingly.
  2. The added bonus of making your own condensed milk is that it works out at roughly half the price of store-bought condensed milk.
  3. To start, measure out 2 and one quarter cups of full cream milk, and 2 thirds of a cup of sugar plus one tablespoon. You can use any white sugar, however I prefer to use caster sugar as it is highly refined and contains less impurities, resulting in less scum or slag that has to be skimmed from the top of the pot.
  4. Place a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and pour in the milk and sugar. Stir this until the sugar has dissolved. You will know when it is dissolved as the bottom of the pot will be smooth.
  5. At this stage, remove the spatula from the pot and wait until the milk just comes to a gentle simmer around the edges.
  6. Reduce the heat and allow this to simmer gently for 35-40 minutes. The exact timing will depend on what pot you use, your stove, and many other variables.
  7. During this stage it is important not to disturb the milk in any way. Stirring or agitating the milk will knock sugar crystals that form on the edges of the pot back into the mixture, and this will result in a grainy condensed milk.
  8. When the milk has reduced to half of it’s original volume, use a spoon dipped in a little water to skim off any slag or scum.
  9. If the milk coats you spoon and drips off from the spoon like pouring cream, the process is complete.
  10. Remove the pot from the heat and pour the condensed milk through a sieve to strain out any skin and slag that you may have missed with the spoon.
  11. Allow the condensed milk to cool to room temperature before covering and refrigerating. The condensed milk will last for 6 months under refrigeration.
  12. As the condensed milk cools it will thicken dramatically to the consistency of store-bought condensed milk.
  13. And there we have it, silky-smooth creamy condensed milk made right here at home.
  14. That’s it for today folks, please like, subscribe and share, and we’ll see you again real soon.

  1. In my long search for the best doughnut recipe, I have tried dozens of different recipes, techniques and procedures. I can quite confidently say that this is the best doughnut recipe ever.
  2. Before we continue, to make the dough for this recipe, you will need a strong bowl mixer, like a Kenwood or Kitchenaid, as mixing the dough will test your machine.
  3. To start, measure 500g strong white bread flour into your mixer bowl.
  4. Add 15g instant dry yeast, 60g sugar, 10ml fine salt, the zest of half a lemon, 4 eggs lightly beaten and 150ml water.
  5. In addition, measure out 125g softened unsalted butter and put this aside.
  6. Put the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached. Mix the dough on medium speed for about 8 minutes, and the dough comes away clean from the side of the bowl.
  7. Scrape the dough down from the hook and add one fifth of the butter to the bowl. Mix this at medium high speed. Add another 25g of butter every minute and continue mixing until all of the butter is combined with the dough.
  8. The dough will be glossy, smooth and very elastic.
  9. Transfer the dough to a bowl, cover with clingfilm and allow this to rise until doubled in size.... about an hour.
  10. Knock the dough back, recover the bowl and place this in your refrigerator overnight.
  11. The following day remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide it into 20 x 50g portions. Roll each portion into a ball, flatten it into a disc and transfer it to a lightly floured baking sheet, leaving about an inch between each one. Once all of the donuts are formed, lightly cover the sheet with clingfilm.
  12. Allow these to rise for 4 hours in a warm place.
  13. If any of the donuts have stuck to one another, simply separate them using a knife.
  14. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  15. Fry the donuts in batches for 4 minutes, turning halfway through. Remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  16. Toss the donuts in caster sugar and you're ready to sample the best donuts ever.

  • Cinnamon sugar for dusting
Instructions
  1. Today we're making a super-quick condensed milk tart. This delicious treat literally takes only 10 minutes to make, and absolutely no baking skills are required.
  2. To start, open 2 packets, or 360g tennis biscuits or tea biscuits and melt and measure 200g of butter.
  3. Break the biscuits into the bowl of your food processor and zap these until reasonably fine.
  4. Drizzle the melted butter in through the feeder tube of the processor and run this until everything is well combined. Depending on what brand of biscuits you use, you may have to add an additional 100g of butter if the crumbly mixture doesn't hold together when compressed.
  5. Divide the mixture between two 22cm tart foils.
  6. Start compressing the pastry from the center outwards pressing it into the bottom corners and up the sides.
  7. Work around the edges pressing the pastry as you go.
  8. Use the back of a spoon to smooth of the base and define the bottom corner. This will help to achieve even thickness all the way through the base.
  9. Repeat this exercise with the sides, leaving the top edge rustic and rough.
  10. Continue with the second tart before transferring them both to the freezer while you continue with the filling.
  11. Pour 770g of sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl.
  12. Add 1 liter of double cream yogurt.
  13. Use a spatula to mix this until thoroughly blended.
  14. Remove the tart shells from the freezer and pour half of the filling into each shell.
  15. Dust the tops of the tarts with cinnamon sugar.
  16. Place each tart onto a heavy plate. Pop one of these into your microwave oven on maximum for 4 minutes, then repeat with the second tart.
  17. They emerge from the microwave looking just like this.
  18. Transfer the tarts to you refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set, preferably overnight.
  19. Serve your tart the following day garnished with whipped cream, and enjoy.
