Condensed Milk Pound Cake!!

Here i come again with yet another interesting recipe. The name says it all.....A Pound Cake made with Condensed Milk. Its a very easy and delicious recipe that can be prepared by using just a few ingredients. I recently saw the making of this cake in food network and watching its scrumptious results, i was motivated to make the cake. I had all the ingredients in hand and I love condensed milk, so today was the day. It turned out so so so good. Sharing the recipe with you.

You will need:

---11/3 cups all purpose flour
---1 cup powdered sugar
---3/4 tsp baking powder
---1/2 tsp salt
---3 large eggs
---1 cup sweetened condensed milk
---1 cup whipped unsalted butter
---2 tsps pure vanilla extract
---Greased round or square pan


---Preheat the oven to 325° F.
---Generously butter the cake pan and set aside.

---Sift(filter) together the flour and baking powder and set aside.
---Take a big mixing bowl and put the sugar in it.

---Add the butter and salt and mix until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl occasionally.

--- Add the condensed milk and pulse until well incorporated, about 15 times, scraping down the sides of the bowl once. (I used a big spoon to beat the butter, sugar and condensed milk but you can use a beater).

---Add the sifted dry ingredients (flour and baking powder) and pulse until no traces of flour remain, about 10 times.

---Add the eggs and pulse just until combined, about 5 times.

---Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl, add the vanilla extract and finish mixing by hand to fully incorporate the eggs.

---Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan ( fully greased).

---Bake until the top is dark golden brown and a tester (usually a toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean.
[I baked my pound cake for 45 minutes!]

---Cool completely in the cake pan on a rack, then unmold.

---You can transfer the cake on to a plate or a cakemate as per your choice. Also you can cut the cake into your desired shapes( i prefer triangular) and preserve them in air tight container for 1 week to 10days.

PS: Use store bought Carnation sweetened condensed milk and use the whipped butter at room temperaure . In that way it will be very easy when you mix things.

Hope you liked this its your turn to try it out!!

Love this recipe!! Is it okay if we use normal butter instead of whipped? What's the difference? Texture?

ARUNA said...

yeah u can use normal unsalted butter too...whipped gives a more fluffy texture!
