sweetened condensed milk cake

Please tell me I am not the only person addicted to sweetened condensed milk? I love how rich and unctuous it is, and I adore seeing it poured out of a tin – it is so satisfyingly oozy!

I always grab a tin when I am in the supermarket as it is so versatile when it comes to creating desserts. I make my home-made dulche de leche with it, which in turn gets made into delicious cakes:dulce de leche chocolate cake. The Hungry Mum

I recently grabbed my tin from the pantry to make this simple yet delicious four ingredient sweetened condensed milk cake. This is going to go into my repertoire – so fast and simple to make, and you’d be lucky to have any crumbs left over after serving it to friends.

Next time I might add some lemon zest, or maybe even a swirl of strawberry jam to the batter. I think a pinch of cinnamon would be lovely too. Luckily I always have a spare tin in the pantry 😉

I served mine with just a dust of icing sugar but cream aficionados would probably appreciate a dollop on the side.


1 tin sweetened condensed milk (395 grams)

4 eggs

50 grams butter, melted

1 cup self-raising flour

Condensed milk cake recipe

    Yay! I always have a tin of condensed milk, too. The cake sounds really moist and delicious. I could imagine salted caramel would be perfect with this, too. 😀

    I bake magic bars wth sweetened condensed milk, walnuts, coconut and chocolate chips. They are special and I make them for holidays. This cake looks great too! Thanks for sharing.😄

    yum yum!

  5. You’re not alone when it comes to condensed milk – the stuff is addictive! The cake looks great, and I like the ideas for additions. On my “to try soon” list! 🙂

    Wow. That really does seem simple. I will have to give it a try, not least because I love condensed milk.

    The only thing I like better than a recipe that uses a tin of condensed milk, is a recipe that uses half a tin – because I get to eat the rest! I’m afraid I’ve always been a tragic for condensed milk.

      haha! I am afraid this does use the whole tin – but I find running a small rubber spatula inside the ’empty’ tin brings its own rewards 😉

    Good gravy, woman! I’ve lost 1/5 of my body mass this year and you keep tempting me. The latest is a 4 ingredient cake — all of which just happen to be in my cupboards. Were you a Siren in a previous life? Mata Hari? Eve, perhaps? If, heaven forbid, I die 200 pounds overweight, check the obituary. No one – but you — will understand my last words “the hungry mum”. (You gotta admit. It’s better than “Rosebud”.)

      Ha! I never thought I would make it into someone’s obit! But bravo for dropping so much weight – that’s an epic amount. I am the temptress of the pantry, the enchantress of the muffin pan… Sugar for all!

    Just wondering what temperature? Have to try!

    • The Hungry Mum at 8:11 am #

      Hi Denise, I can’t believe I forgot the temp – thanks for letting me know. It is 175 C. Cheers.

        Thank you!

    Do you think i could add some blueberries to this recipe? And maybe some banana? Coconut flakes on top……? #new2baking

    • The Hungry Mum at 2:29 pm #

      I haven`t tried adding anything to this cake – if you are going to try I would probably skip the banana but maybe scatter a few berries in… let me know how it turns out. Trial and error is the best way to bake!
