I just love this recipe - it's just like having thermomix condensed milk "on tap" as whenever I want it I can just whip it up in 6 mins! (Yes, a bit dangerous I know!) ;)
Much quicker and cheaper than going to the shop to get some if I've run out. The beauty of this recipe too, is that the quantity can be made up to 5 times in one batch and then stored in the fridge.
With many thanks to Maryanne Skitt who has given me her permission for me to publish her recipe on my website. I found Maryanne's recipe for thermomix condensed milk on the recipe community a year or so ago and I love making it! Make sure you drop by Maryanne's recipe and let her know how you like it.
- 80g water
- 150g raw sugar
- 90g butter, cubed
- 110g dry full cream milk powder
- Insert butterfly into TM bowl.
- Place all ingredients into TM bowl and cook 6 mins / 90°C / speed 4.
The milk will be a darker caramel colour if you use raw sugar.

Made a batch last night & it turned out a treat. Luckily I used it all in a passion fruit slice I made today, otherwise it would be too tempting to finish it off by the spoonful. This is amazing. Thanks for sharing. I’ve already shared the link to a friend. Can you make caramel out of it?
Thanks Beruta pleased you enjoyed it. Sorry no I haven't made caramel out of it.
This is really good, tastes way better than the canned stuff. Thank You!
Just wondering if anyone has made this using coconut milk powder?
I would love to know this too.
Hi, can this be make without a Thermomix as I don't have one. Perhaps on a low heat on the stove element? I would love to be able to make this condensed milk as I make a lot of Cheesecakes for Church functions. It is an uncooked cheesecake and uses 1 can of condensed milk. Tastes lovely & is not at all sweet.
Judy, I haven't tried it on a stove but I'd say it should work. You'd have to keep stirring it though I suspect. Hope it works out for you. :)
Yum! Had never made this before because it's one of those things I always seem to have in the cupboard, but I wanted to make a double batch of snickers slice and only had enough condensed milk for one lot. So I quickly whipped this up. It took 5 minutes, used ingredients I already had, and tasted even better than bought.
No turning back now Darra :D
I made it with skimmed milk powder as full milk powder is not easy to find in the uk. I followed instructions then did an extra 9 mins same speed same heat just for good measure. Tastes and looks likes what you buy - brill.
oh wow that's fantastic Hannah! Thank you so much for letting us know.
This is way to easy. I was making the 100 biscuites recipe and just left it in the bowl and then started adding the ingredients and followed the recipe , worked a treat. Thanks
Thank you Leah - yes way too easy that it can be dangerous!! lol!! ;)
Does anyone know if this is ok to make with xylitol instead of sugar ?
Is it possible to make the condensed milk ahead and store in the fridge for a few weeks or can it be made ahead and put into serilised jars to keep, so you can have it on hand when a recipe calls for condensed milk?
Yes you sure can make ahead - or quadruple the batch and store in fridge. The only problem will be resisting the temptation to grab a spoon each time you open the fridge!! :)

Thanks for the recipe. I too was caught without a tin in my pantry, so discovering this was super good. I thought it was too runny so I repeated another 8 min. same temp and speed and it is really nice. I want to try using fresh milk as per Adele's recipe one day.
This recipe is awesome, never fails and is perfect when making a quick batch of fudge.
As a kid, eating condensed milk straight from the tin was a treat. I promise I don't do that any more :)
It's okay if you do Cathy you would be in good company :D
Melanie Hulm says
This is a very quick alternative to store bought condensed milk. Plus you know what's in it ?
I have not bought condensed milk since discovering this recipe. Not only does it taste exactly the same (if not better) than the bought stuff, it is cheaper to make it yourself. $1.23 for a little over 400g = BARGAIN!
I know it's a bargain alright! Thanks for sharing Elizabeth.
Wow this is awesome,never buying stuff in a tin again. Now condensed milk will always be on hand. Thank you.
What does this work out to be cost wise? We have one at school and I'm always trying to get the ladies to try things like this but they can't see how it would save money!!
I personally have not done the maths on this. However someone else has said it worked out at about 1.37 for 400g. I just checked Woolworths sell it for $3.20.
I have been using this recipe for ages. Normally do a double batch. If you double the recipe, do no increase the cooking time, because it just turns into caramel, just leave it at 6 minutes. I have kept it in the fridge for around 5 days with no problems. Would probably last longer, there is nothing in it that would go off quickly.
Thanks! Was just about to ask if we could double it ☺️
Yum, this recipe got me out of a real pickle when i found out the tin in the cupboard has a use by date of 2011!! Thanks
Thanks Wendy. Wow it was obviously well hidden or you have more restraint than me to keep a can of condensed milk that long! lol! ;)
Natalie Bourke says
It would have still been fine to use.... it’s sealed and has sugar in it.... it won’t go off!
Just made a batch to use in a key lime pie tomorrow, it's very buttery but I loved it and I think it will go awesome with the lime! Thank you !!
Speed 3 sounds much better ?
Can you use actual milk or does it have to be milk powder and water?
Hi Trista no - you do need the milk powder. :)
You can Trista, this is the recipe I use -
550 g milk
150 g sugar
25 g butter
2 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Put butterfly into TM bowl
Put all ingredients into TM bowl and mix 15 mins varoma, speed 4,
Then repeat for another 10 mins, varoma speed 3-4, cap off but cloth over hole to stop splattering.
Can you tell me how much your recipe makes, please.
Kathleen it makes 400g (equivalent of one tin) :)
My husband uses store bought condensed milk every morning in his coffee. Just made a batch late tonight for his coffee tomorrow. Tastes great! Hope he likes it!!
oh make sure you let us know if it passes the hubby test Michelle :)
Could you make the condensed milk with coffee in it just like they sell in the tubes??
That’s a great idea!! Easy quick coffee for work.
I made with skim milk powder. After leaving in fridge for couple of hours it didn't seem to thicken up anywhere as much as the condensed milk. Also found to be very buttery in taste. I still used it in the slice I was making & there were not complaints :-)
Is there a dairy-free version to this? I avoid dairy & Soy Milk Powder doesn't seem all that easy to come by over in the UK, although I normally use Lacto-free milk... but this obviously isn't powder form! Do you have a recipe that uses standard Milk rather than powder, or could I adapt this somehow??
Hi Laura you could try Quirky Jo's recipe. :) https://www.quirkycooking.com.au/2013/06/dairy-free-condensed-milk-dulce-de-leche/
Lisa Roberton says
Thanks for the share it will be great to have on hand when I need condensed milk (which seems to be rather a lot ........)
does it definitely have to be full cream milk powder - skim wouldn't work?
I have heard it does work with skim but personally have not tried it. I'd love you to let me know if you give it a go. :)
I just made it with skim milk powder and it worked a treat
Thank you Toni. Great to know. :)
Have to finally give this a go. Would you know how long it would last in the fridge ?
Sorry Sue no I haven't actually tested how long it will last as I just make it when required.
