Powdered Milk?
I am making a cake that calls for 1/2 cup of powdered milk but the recipe does not say if that means dry, or make it into milk. I don't have powdered milk anyway, but what if I leave it out. Thanks for any help. Betsy.

Sorry, but your cake probably won't come out very well without the powdered (dry) milk.

You 'might' be able to use fresh milk but I'm not sure what 1/2 cup dry would convert to, but it would be over 1 cup liquid, and you would have to eliminate that much liquid from elsewhere in the recipe to equalize.

The recipe means dry or it would tell you to hydrate. At least that's my take.
My white bread recipe calls for powdered too - dry.

That answers it. Two posts today and so much good feedback. I love this forum. Thank you. Betsy.

You may be able to sub powdered coffee creamer, if you have it, for the powdered milk. I do that all the time using my non-dairy coffee creamer.

Carnation and Sanilac are two brands of dry milk. They are often ingredients in bread recipes, too.
