  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs (separated)
  • 1 cup white sugar (divided)
  • 1/3 cup reconstituted Medallion Whole Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 oz evaporated milk*
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk*
  • 1/4 cup reconstituted Medallion Whole Milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 9x13" pan with non-stick cooking spray or butter.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In two separate bowls, separate the egg yolks and whites.
  4. Add 3/4 cup sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks and mix on high speed until yolks are a pale yellow, then add the 1/3 cup Medallion Whole Milk and vanilla, stirring to combine.
  5. Pour the egg yolk mixture over the flour mixture and stir gently until combined, careful not to over-mix.
  6. Mix the egg whites on high speed. Gradually adding the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar as you mix, continuing to beat until you have stiff peaks.
  7. Fold egg whites into batter gently, just until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  10. Slowly pour the milk mixture over the top of the cake, making sure to evenly distribute.
  11. Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour, or overnight, to allow the milk mixture to soak in.
