What is Condensed Milk Cake?
The condensed milk cake is a dessert or cake recipe which is currently booming here in the country. This is because it is so easy to make and it only takes an average of five ingredients to make this incredibly delicious cake. This is only made of condensed milk, all-purpose flour, baking powder, eggs, and vanilla extract.
The popularity of no bake cake is rapidly growing all around the world, hence, various kinds of no bake recipes such as this one are made.
This is a method which a lot of people use because it removes the hassle of acquiring and using an oven just to prepare a cake. Especially here in the Philippines, most people do not feel the need to use a baking oven on a daily basis so it is not accessible to a lot.
How to make Condensed Milk Cake?
Making the condensed milk cake is super easy. To start, think about the three main steps that we are going to do when doing this recipe, this is for you to visualize the procedure easier: First is to combine all of the initial ingredients first, second is to mind the process of beating the egg whites and combining it into the initial mixture, and the last step is to steam the cake to perfection. And that’s pretty much it.
When beating the egg whites, it is important that the mixture becomes frothy. You can manually do this by whisking with a fork or a whisk. You do not need to exhaust yourself by beating it super fast, but do take note that it will take quite some time before it becomes frothy. But another option is to use an electric mixer if you have it available with you, to make the task even easier.

Condensed Milk Cake Benefit
One good thing to consider here in this recipe is it is relatively a healthier option than other types of sweet cakes. This is because we don’t use any kind of sugar as a sweetener for the cake, since the dessert is naturally sweet, given the use of the condensed milk, obviously.
Compared to using the usual sugar, the condensed milk provides healthier components such as protein and calcium. On top of that, the milk adds more of that distinct kind of sweetness and milkier texture.
This cake is quite flexible when it comes to possible toppings. Here are some suggestions that you can try and even combine:
- Chocolate syrup
- Caramel syrup
- Powdered sugar
- Grated cheese
- Fresh fruits
You can also try matching this with our very own barako coffee!
