INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
Milk- I use whole milk. I haven’t tried but I heard almond milk and coconut milk also work.
Sugar- I use granulated sugar. Sugar plays an important role as a thickener besides the sweetness.

- Condensed Milk 300g ( 1 cup)
- Salted butter 50g ( 1/4 cup)
- All purpose flour 125g ( sifted ) ( 1 cup)

Homemade Condensed Milk Directions:
Separate the eggs white and yolk. Beat the eggs yolk (whisk enough) & add 300g of condensed milk When it becomes smooth paste add salted butter 50g
After adding butter its difficult to mix with hand mixture, hence i used the beater and beated them around 10 minutes ( you can do the same with your whisk but im little lazy )
Now add 125g of all purpose flour ( sifted) cornstarch 25g & baking powder 10g in to the batter and mix all together.
Now the main batter is ready. now beat the eggs whites ( i beated around 10 minutes in high speed & I didnt clean the beater and used the same. Hence eggs whites not become fluffy )
Mix the both together with using a spoon and transfer it in to your baking tray.
( when you are using baking trays pls try to use tray like i used because sometimes springform pans are not working well for steam)
Cover the pan with aluminum foil. I fully covered it.
Steam for 1 hour in low heat. open the lid and let it to cool. Now remove the aluminum foil and its ready to serve.
