    • Hey there! From my research, "evaporated milk" simply is simple "not sweetened condensed milk". FR readers, this would be "lait concentré nature" in opposition to "lait concentré sucré". Cheers!

    • Definitely evaporated. I remember this for school dinners 40 years ago in Thanet, South East Kent. Last summer I saw individual ones being sold in Morrisons, Margate. Tip put evap milk in fridge for 30 mins beforehand and whisk well before adding sugar.

    • I may be wrong but I think this should be evaporated milk not condensed milk!! could someone let me know if this is right please.

    • You will need to whisk the condensed milk until it is very thick, then add the sugar and then whisk again...if you just 'mix' them together then it will not solidify after baking
