I’m in love with Milk and Honey . it’s an amazing blog. I read it from post one to the last one when I first started following it and I’m there every week since then just to see what she has posted. When I saw this recipe I just had to try it. It sounded ridiculously moist. Three types of milk THREE and you pour one on the cake after its baked sounded like a melt in your mouth kind of cake and true to my expectations the cake completely melted in my mouth. It was heavenly I tell you pure bliss in a cake.
The only thing I kinda did not like about this cake was the amount of sugar I used about 180 grams (recipe asked for 220g) but I think because of the sweetened condensed milk it ended up having a tad bit too much sugar in the end. So for you guys I recommend about 110g of sugar.
Hope you love it as much as I did. HAPPY BAKING!!
Prep Time: 12 hours
Cook Time: 35 minutes
- 180g unsalted butter, softened
- 110g caster sugar (you could use less)
- 1 vanilla bean, seeds scrapped
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 5 eggs
- 225g self raising flour
- 250ml milk
- 250ml sweetened condensed milk
- 250ml buttermilk (make your own here)
- 500ml whipping cream
- sliced fruit
- Place the butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until fluffy and pale, about 8-10 minutes. Add seeds and beat to combine. Gradually add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. slowly add the flour and beat until just combined. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm brownie tin lined with non-stick baking paper and bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Using a skewer, make holes all over the top of cake and place in the refrigerator to cool completely.
- While the cake is cooling, place all of the milks and the vanilla extract in a jug and mix well to combine. Pour the milk mixture over the cake and return to the refrigerator overnight. The cake will absorb the milk and you’ll be left with a deliriously moist vanilla cake.
- Place the cream in a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Top the cake with the cream. You can pile the sliced fruit all over the cake,
