Evaporated milk baking Recipes

My family has high expectations from me. I can not make them go back to store-bought bread.

Don’t get me wrong, I love making and eating homemade bread, but some days, when I’m struggling keeping up with laundry, cleaning, cooking, play dates I wish I could just stop at a local bakery and buy a freshly baked loaf.

These buns were so close to be replaced with store-bought ones.

But I’m glad they are not.

And you should be glad too.

I know you’re probably thinking : did she ran out of regular milk and found a long-time forgotten can of evaporated milk in her pantry?

They are soft, fluffy, buttery with a nice creamy color crumb and a golden crust.

So far I can’t complain.

Evaporated milk sweet buns - soft, sweet, buttery with a creamy crumb and a golden crust


  • 4 cups (480 grams) bread flour
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp (56 grams) butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) evaporated cane juice organic sugar (granulated sugar works just as well)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) evaporated milk
  • 3 tbsp melted butter + 1 tbsp raw sugar (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl add 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup lukewarm water and 2 tsp yeast. Mix and leave at room temperature until the bubbles appear and has a spongy texture.
  2. In a small separate bowl mix the eggs with the sugar, 4 tbsp melted butter, salt and evaporated milk.
  3. Add them to the yeast mixture and with the dough hook on start mixing while slowly adding the rest of the bread flour, 1/2 cup at a time, making sure it's mixed before you add some more.
  4. When all the flour is added, knead for further 5 minutes on low-to-medium speed.
  5. If you prefer kneading by hand, knead for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic foil and leave at room temperature until doubled in size.
  7. When risen, divide the dough in 12 buns and place them on a baking sheet.
  8. Cover again and leave for a second rise.
  9. In the meantime preheat the oven to 400F.
  10. When the buns are almost doubled in size, brush them with melted butter and sprinkle a little sugar on top. If you want dinner rolls, skip the sprinkled sugar.
  11. Lower the oven temperature to 375F and bake the buns for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Enjoy!
