Condensed milk pound cake

Heard so many rave reviews about this recipe. And some even mentioned that it is comparable to Sara Lee cakes, which is my favourite! I just had to try this.. and here it is!

Verdict : this is definately a good recipe! I even had the confidence to double the recipe even tho' I had not tried baking it before. Look how fine the texture is, and the sweetness is just right!
I extracted this recipe from Rei. Thanks gal, for posting it.

  • I wanted to try a condense milk cake recipe too but too lazy to start. I already have the condense milk ready in my pantry, I really want to do it. Okay then, since you have tried this recipe, I'm going to use your recipe then. Thanks for sharing the recipe. One of these days, I'm going to make it. :) But the way, the cake looks great!

  • Condensed milk is just magical! It really does amazing things for baked goods. Your pound cakes look incredible. They look moist, and the crumb is so delicate and tight. Just perfect!

  • Hi everyone,

    I realised that I've indicated a wrong amt of usgar in the recipe. Have edited it and it's now reflecting the correct amount.

    Also take note that the recipe is for one loaf tin.

    Have fun!

  • Hi, I'm going to use a 20cm oval shaped cake tin for this recipe. How would the baking timing differ?

    By Blogger Evelyn, at 12:38 PM, September 06, 2010  

  • Hi Evelyn,

    I think baking time shd stay the same. U doubling the recipe? Check for doneness after 1 hr. if still not baked, check every 5mins.

  • Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.. i've baked it and loving it!

  • I would love to try this recipe. I do not have vanilla paste. Can I substitute it with vanilla essence. If so, how much?

    By Anonymous Wendy, at 9:50 AM, December 02, 2010  

  • Hi Wendy,

    same amount to replace the paste.

  • This looks delish. I like the use of condensed milk, however I am a chocolate lover, how would I incorporate chocolate or cocoa in this?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:07 AM, April 19, 2011  

  • you can add some cocoa powder to a part of the batter and then swirl it in or add chocolate paste to the batter.

  • If I want to double the recipe like you do, do I use 3 teaspoon of vanilla essence?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:12 PM, October 31, 2011  

  • Yes, 3 tsp of vanilla paste when u double the recipe.
