Dessert Recipes using evaporated milk
Goodness. You have to try these.
Here’s how it shakes out. Several weeks ago, I was gifted with a tin of brownies. To be specific: Killer Brownies from Dorothy Lane Market in Dayton, Ohio. There were four substantially-sized brownies in the tin, and each brownie was coated generously with a sifting of powdered sugar. But they weren’t just any brownies: they were multilayered, with a gorgeous caramel oozing out of the center layer. And the flavor. To die for. I ate them over the period of several days, more despondent with each bite that I was one step closer to being without them. And I didn’t ever want to be without them again.
They’re one of the best things I’ve ever tasted.

You’ll also need some melted butter…
And some evaporated milk.
Pour the evaporated milk over the cake mix.
Then add the butter…
And the nuts.
Stir together until totally combined. It’ll be very, very thick–not at all like cake batter. More like a thick cookie dough.
Spray a square (either 8 x 8 or 9 x 9) baking pan very generously with nonstick cooking spray.
Divide the dough in half…

The substitution or addition will unset the balance of sweetness, (to much of a good thing). If it's a dessert recipe you're creating "yourself" then do not add any other sweetener for your test run, then you'll be able to determine what ratio you need for your final test.
The difference between condensed and evaporated comes in to play when you have sweetened condensed milk,***** which cannot be substituted for evaporated milk.**** Sweetened condensed milk contains a very large amount of sugar. In fact, at least 40% of what is inside a can of sweetened condensed milk is sugar. It is t…
