Preparation time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 50 minutes | Serves: 12


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gently fold in the flour mixture until just combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. While the cake is baking, combine the evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat.
  8. Once the cake is done, poke holes all over the top with a fork and slowly pour the milk mixture over the cake. Let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  9. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  10. Spread the whipped cream over the chilled cake and serve cold. Enjoy!
