Sounds good! To clarify though, is that evaporated milk or sweetened condensed milk? Since it says condensed I am assuming it is the latter.

OMG. My "spinster" great-aunt (my mentor, my friend, my confidant) used to always make that when I would come to stay with her. Thanks for sharing it. The recipe wasn't in her recipe box (one of the few things I DEMANDED was mine). That recipe brings back so many memories.

Sweetened Condensed Milk, right? I believe that's the correct term to avoid confusion. Sounds wonderful.....copied and pasted. Yummm

LAJ, I know that, and I assure you that the previous posters on this thread know that too. The point is, that using the correct term eliminates confusion for the thousands of guests who visit DC and are very new to cooking.

As Kayelle stated, we know the difference between condensed and evaporated, but every now and then someone will post a recipe and will use one term but mean the other. Some also use the term "canned milk," which can be confusing. In my house, if we say "canned milk" we mean evaporated, but others may mean sweetened condensed.

This reminds me of the word "soda." If my daughter asked her son to go to the store and buy soda she would expect him to come home with a carbonated soft drink. However, if I had ever asked my daughter to go to the store and buy soda, she had better come home with baking soda.
