Pinterest Challenge – Condensed Milk Cake

January 28, 2013 § 1 Comment

Ah, Pinterest. You are so full of wonderful pictures, crafty projects and helpful household tips that I can’t help but spend hours and hours pinning to the various themed boards I’ve created. I have several boards and hundreds of pins, but I realized that I haven’t done much with those pins. I pinned them for a reason, right? So, I am going on a little Pinterest adventure and will try at least one new pin every day for a week. Here’s to hoping for more successes than Pinterest Fails!

Pinterest Challenge – Day 1

Pin - Condensed Milk Cake

When I saw this cake on Pinterest and then saw that it only takes five ingredients to make it, I knew it would be a great place to start my Seven Days of Pinterest adventure.

My cake didn’t rise as much as the one in the Pinterest pic, but the consistency looked dead on. It’s taste is slightly sweet almost resembles a very dense version of an angel food cake. I tried it with fresh blackberries which added a great tartness to the dessert, but it’s best with something to add moisture to it. See my quick-fix raspberry sauce below.

Condensed Milk Cake by Dr. Ola’s Kitchen

1 can condensed, sweetened milk (I used the non-fat version and it still tastes great)
4 large eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350F

Prepare your a springform cake pan by spraying it with cooking spray or brushing it with 1 tablespoon butter and dusting it with flour.

With an electric mixer, mix all ingredients until smooth then add them to the cake pan.

Bake for 40 minutes (or less according to the cake’s thickness).

Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and serve with fruit sauce or fresh fruits.

Raspberry Sauce
Heat 1/4 – 1/2 cup (depending on how many slices you’re serving) raspberry preserves with 2 tablespoons apple juice over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally until preserves are hot, but not boiling. Spoon sauce over the cake and serve immediately.
