Condense milk cake

This is a condense milk eggless sponge cake recipe that I found on the internet. I was trying to get a recipe for a Victorian sponge cake and this recipe popped up.

I was under the impression that using condense milk in a cake would make it extremely tooth ache sweet, but it wasn’t at all. If you didn’t know that there was condense milk in the cake you would never know at all.

Also the cake browned very quickly and as Yolanda Gumpp would say the cake caramelized on the top.

The only part I found difficult and you can see from the picture is the icing part. This was the first time I tried to whip fresh cream and the recipe said peaks, I am not sure what I was expecting but I beat that cream till it started to separate and become clumpy like butter.

Thank goodness it was just family I was serving it to so they ate it without saying that the icing tasted like butter 🙂
