For Sunday lunch this week I saw another recipe in the next episode of the show that I want to try, my problem is it does not use condensed milk...
½ tsp Baking Powder
2oz Self Raising Flour
¼ Tsp Salt
1 Pint of Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3oz Desiccated Coconut
1. Mix everything together
2. Pour into a greased oven proof basin or casserole dish
3. Bake in oven Gas Mark 4 for one hour.
Ok, the tin of condensed milk is 14oz, of that about 50% by weight is sugar so that is my 7oz of sugar. Now lets pretend that leaves 7oz of milk, the milk in condensed milk has had 60% of it's water removed so if I add 10oz of water we have 17oz of milk so I need to add another 3oz of milk to make the pint. This is all assuming that all the liquids have the same density as water, which will be close-ish. I might just add 13oz of milk and have it slightly richer.
So I have a plan.
