Work catering #16: One can of condensed milk

One simple can of condensed milk, yet so much can be done with this humble ingredient! It works well with both baked slices and cheesecakes and no bake cakes.

This week I made two quite different slices but both using condensed milk. I've also posted up many other recipes that use condense milk such as Choc chip and macadamia cookies, Rumballs and Strawberry Jelly slice. So here are 2 more to add to the collection!

The original recipe baked the cake in a 20cm round spring form tin however for the purposes of work catering I turned it into a slice =) I'm also loving this new Baking website called Baker's corner. It has so many simple ideas using similar ingredients =D You guys should check it out!

Raspberry Crumble Cheesecake (slice)
Recipe adapted from Baker's corner

375g plain sweet biscuits, crushed
150g butter, melted
250g cream cheese, softened
1 can (395g) of condensed milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup (125ml) thickened cram
1/2 cup (75g plain flour)
200g fresh or frozen raspberries

1. Preheat oven to 180oC/160oC fan forced. Grease and line 20x30cm slice tin.
2. Combine biscuits and butter in large bowl. Reserve 1/4 of biscuit mixture for the topping. Press remaining biscuit mixture into the base of slice tin and refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm.
3. Beat cream cheese and condensed milk with electric beater until smooth. Add eggs, cream and flour and beat until combined.
4. Gently fold in raspberries. Spoon mixture evently over crumb base. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over cheesecake.
5. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until set. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
Crumble on the top and the bottom! Love it!

I love <3 love <3 love cheesecake (if you haven't already noticed) and this was my first baked cheesecake in a while. I love the crumble mix however I found the base to be a bit dry so maybe you can add a little more butter next time. The raspberries were a little tart but was good to cut through the sweetness.

Choc chip Fudge Slice
Recipe adapted from Baker's corner

1 can (395g) condensed milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup hazelnut meal
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
125g butter, melted
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 180oC. Line 20 x 20cm tin.
2. Combine condensed milk, cocoa powder, flour, sugar, hazelnuts, coconut and butter in a bowl and mix well.
3. Spoon mix into prepared pan and press chocolate chips on top.
4. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden. Cool in tin before slicing.

This is such a simple "All-in-one-bowl-and-mix" recipes =D Love it! Turned out really yummy and fudgy! Kind of tasted like a rumball slice, I guess because of the coconut.
Yummy and chewy inside~~


  1. The chocolate fudge slice looks good but I wonder if it's too sweet? Since it uses both condensed milk and brown sugar

    1. Hey~ It actually wasn't too sweet! haha.. or maybe because my taste buds are now immune to sweetness ;P
      But my friend who doesn't really like too sweet things liked it.. so im going with that =)

    2. Sounds good! I'll definitely give it a try
