Look at that Bastard! He’s just trying to stir up trouble with an image like that!
For my fellow Coffee & Milk (and other sweetened condensed milk) addicts, you can escape the Nescafe Pushers who are just tooling your entire life so they can be billionaires while you live in abject poverty.
…by making your own. For like 1/5th the price.
You will need:
- 1 cup of Powdered milk
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons of instant coffee
Place the lot into a small saucepan and heat gently while mixing it with a whisk. Add a small amount of water (I used boiling), and stir, repeating until you get the right consistency. Don’t let the saucepan get too hot, as things will start to caramelize on the bottom and be a bastard to clean– however you can play around with the amount of cooking time to intentionally set a level of caramelsation– but don’t let it get too thick. When it looks and tastes ready, pour into a bowl and put in the fridge. Ta-daa, Impoverished Student Sweetened Condensed Milk!
The recipe takes to changes pretty-well: I’ve used golden syrup when I’ve ran out of sugar, used 3-in-1 coffee sachets, a nice-quality cocoa powder (Chocolate & Milk! I’ll try a Chai Tea & Milk next…) And you could certain bump up the quantity of sugar and coffee if you’re making high-kcal concentrate for adding to hot water for camping or the Midnight Buzz…
