  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Milk pickled:

  • Evaporated milk 340 g*
  • Sweetened condensed milk 400g

To make the cake:

Preheat the oven to 170℃ and put the butter and flour in a 23x33cm mold.

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Separate the egg yolks and whites. In a deep bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar until thickened and pale yellow.

Add the remaining sugar to the egg whites and whisk until stiff peaks form.

Combine flour mixture and egg yolk mixture and mix well. Slowly fold the egg white mixture into the flour mixture.

Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

For soaking milk:

Mix all milk soak ingredients.

Place the cooled cake on a tray. Prick the entire surface with a fork. Slowly pour the milk mixture over the cake, being careful to cover the entire cake to the edges.

Let the cake soak for at least 30 minutes.

Interview target:

Mix cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.

Cover the cake with cream frosting.

Store in the refrigerator and enjoy with fruit as desired.
