A very simple cake recipe that consists of thin sweetened condensed milk layers with a sour cream frosting that cuts down the sweetness of the cake, making it a perfect piece of cake to devour with your cup of tea.
1. Add 1 can of condensed milk into a mixing bowl, add 3 eggs, mix with a whisk or a stand mixer to combine.
2. In a separate bowl mix together 1 cup of flour and 1.5tsp of baking powder a a pinch of salt then add the flour to the egg mixture and mix again until the flour is fully incorporated and the batter is smooth.
3. On a parchment paper draw 9" circles to use as a guide OR use the spring form itself. (I find using the spring form much easier and faster, it saves you time drawing circles, plus the form creates even edges) Add 2 heaping tablespoons of the batter into the center of the circle or form and spread equally into a thin layer. Repeat this until you use up all the batter.
Side Note: Use a large baking sheet to fit 2 layers, it will speed up the baking process.
4. Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes or until the layers are golden.
5. Remove the layers from the parchment paper immediately and set aside to cool.
Make the frosting:
In a stand mixer cream 1 package of cream cheese until it is lump-free, then add condensed milk, cream again to combine. Once combined add the sour cream and the cool whip. Whip on med-high for a few minutes until the frosting firms up. (has stiff peaks)
6. Assemble the cake on a cake stand starting with a dollop of cream on the bottom to protect the cake from moving around, then alternate the layers with the cream adding enough cream to double the thickness of the cake layers. (about 4 tablespoons on each layer.
7. Decorate the cake to your preference.
I crumb coated and refrigerated until the cream was set. Then, separately i whipped Heavy whipping cream with powdered sugar and coated the cake smoothing out on all sides. Topped off with dehydrated oranges and greenery.
