Ingredients for Cake
1 package white cake mix
1 1/2 cups flour
5 eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk

Filling
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.)
1/2 pint whipping cream

Whipped Cream Frosting
1/2 pint whipping cream
3 tablespoons sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla

OR Pastry Pride whipped topping.


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Grease and flour 9�x13� cake pan.
3. Mix cake ingredients together and put into greased & floured cake pan.
4. Place in oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.
5. Allow cake to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto cake board and cool for 1 hour.
6. While cake is baking, mix together milk fillings and refrigerate until cake is totally cool.
7. Make frosting by whipping cream, sugar and vanilla until whipped cream peaks (or make Pastry Pride whipped cream as directed on carton).
8. Take completely cooled cake and poke holes with skewer or dowel rods.
9. Take filling and slowly place over cake, allowing it to seep into holes. Work patiently allowing it to seep well before refiling. Should use up all the filling. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.
10. Frost and decorate with whipped cream frosting or Pastry Pride whipped frosting.

Also, for the filling that you pour over the cake, it's really good if you add a little bit of brandy to it. I use Nestle's media crema instead of the evaporated milk. It used to be hard to find but the grocery stores here have it now, even Walmart.

I use stabilized whipped cream for the frosting...otherwise the whipped cream will start to wilt, I think from the moisture in the cake itself.

It's the one cake my kids won't eat, because they don't like wet cake...which means DH and I get to eat it all by ourselves icon_lol.gif
