295. Sweetened Condensed Milk Cake

Sometimes, all you want is the plainest, most unpretentious of cakes, that you can grab for a breakfast on the go with your coffee or juice, or any time of the day with a steaming cup of tea.
This cuts the bill.
It is so plain yet so right. This condensed milk cake is made with five ingredients, all of which almost anyone has on hand. And it takes about 50 minutes to make, from the moment you thought about making it, to the moment it comes out of the oven. I promise.

Adapted from Technicolor Kitchen, via Dr Ola's Kitchen, two wonderful, wonderful food blogs.


1 can (395g) sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled


Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF; generously butter and flour a 22cm (9in) ring cake pan.
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes, or until risen and a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean (test from 30 minutes).
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely before unmolding.
Dust with icing sugar before serving.

So good to hear from you Nadia!
Yes, it's true that the cake is not as crumbly as regular cake, making it more convenient to eat by hand.
I will be sure to do an Iraqi tea post :)
Thanks for letting me know how it turned out for you, I appreciate your comments.

Great foods. I am sitting here wondering about the Iraqi truffles, chima. My husband says he remembers them grown near wheat farms.
