Evaporated Milk helppppp

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me with a recipe I'd like to try

https://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2017/11/01/cinnamon-star-bread-bakealong

I am hoping to sub evaporated milk in place of the dry milk that the recipe calls for but I'm unsure of the conversion/ratio.  If anyone can help it would be super appreciated.

Thanks!

The recipe calls for 1/4 cup dry milk and then 3/4 to 1 cup water.   Which would make about 1 cup of milk.

Evaporated is made into milk by adding half evaporated milk to half water.  So the easy substitution would be to take half a cup of evaporated milk and blend with half a cup of water to make your dough liquids.  

Where the recipe asks for water use instead, 3/4 to 1 cup of the thinned evaporated milk.  :)
