Three Milk cake

Thought of doing something special on this special(Valentines) day. This came into my mind. My friend Lini akka made Three Milk Cake for Thanksgiving dinner and we loved it very much. So just started to make this cake in the morning(just as a surprise) and we had nice time. I used non fat milk when i made this cake. You can choose whatever you want. As you know, best fatty ingredient butter is absent here. So you can enjoy this cake without guilt..

As it's Valentine's day i cut this cake into heart shape. We started our hunting for a heart shape pan from Monday. But couldn't get in nearby stores. Checked in L&T, Kohls, etc. But i couldn't find the heart shape pan. So I just cut the shape using a knife and it came out good.Whoohoooo.. Happy Valentine's DAY!!!!!!

You will need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt
Ingredients to soak the cake

  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 can heavy cream(you can substitute with milk also)
  • ¼ tsp Rum extract(optional)

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Step 2:

Preparing dry ingredients:

In a mixing bowl sieve the all purpose flour along with the baking powder and keep it aside.

Step 3:

Preparing wet ingredients:

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs using a electric mixer on medium for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add sugar, milk and vanilla essence to it and mix it for 1 min.

Step 4:

Adding dry to the wet ingredients:

Now add the dry ingredients(flour and baking powder) to this wet mixture and beat it less than a min.

Step 5:


Grease 8*8 inch baking pan and pour the mixture into that and bake it for 25 to 30 mins till you get a clean tooth pick(same old technique!!!!)

Step 6:

Allow the cake to cool for 10 mins. You can use fork to make small slots in the cake.
I just trimmed off the top layer of the baked cake. That way, the cake can absorb the milk very easily.

Step 7:

Using a mixer just mix all the three milks together with rum extract in a mixing bowl. Now pour the three milk mixture onto the baked cake when the cake is still warm. Allow the three milk cake to chill/soak for minimum 4 hours inside the refrigerator. Even overnight soaking is good.

Cut it and serve. Wow wonderful wonderful cake.. Very moist and yummmmmmmmmmy!!!!!!!!
