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:

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)
50 grams butter, melted
1 cup self-raising flour
LET’S GET TO IT:
Spray inside of 20cm round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and line base with baking paper. Pre-heat oven to 175C.
Place all ingredients into bowl of electric mixer and beat until just combined and smooth.
Scrape into pan and bake for 35 minutes.
Allow to cool in pan before removing to wire rack.
Serve dusted with icing sugar.
