Conversion charts for milk powder or evaporated milk to liquid milk.
When you’re short on liquid milk, do you use milk powder or evaporated milk as a replacement? I do. Powdered and evaporated milks are handy for the home pantry and they are also ideal for compact camping and caravan trips.
But how often have you had to stop mid-recipe to work out how much milk powder is needed to make up ...... cups or mls of liquid milk?
It can be frustrating to do the calculations, or at least I found it so frustrating that I created a 'cheat sheet' chart that shows how much milk powder and water are needed to create a range of volumes.
No more calculations! I use milk powder in cooking to save my liquid milk for drinks and table use. It is very handy to keep on hand for when there are shortages at the shop.
I am sharing my chart with you. It is a quick way to find out how much milk powder to use in place of fresh milk.
There's a separate chart for evaporated milk as well. I have done the maths to save you time. No more calculations!
The weights and measures shown in the charts are very approximate and great for home cooking. Close enough is more than good enough for most recipes. This is convenience cooking, not precision science!
For speed and less washing up, I use digital kitchen scales to weigh water and milk powder. If you prefer using cups and spoons, I’ve got you covered as well.
