12 portions
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon liquid vanilla
  • 3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1/4 cups cream
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 liters milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • strawberries, to decorate


Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC (356F). Separate 6 egg whites in a different bowl. Beat 6 egg whites to the nougat point with an electric mixer (it is very important that they remain on the nougat before adding the other ingredients), once they are added, add the sugar little by little while continuing to beat.
Beat the 6 yolks with a fork and add them to the mixture. Add the flour and milk and beat until a homogeneous mixture is reached.
Grease and flour the mold you intend to use. Empty the cake mixture into the mold so that it is 3/4 full. Place it in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes (without opening the oven, always watching it) or until a stick comes out clean.
While it is baking, mix in the blender or bowl for beating the three milks (condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream) and one yolk (the egg white should be reserved for the frosting)
Once the cake is ready, remove it from the oven and while hot, puncture it slightly with a fork on all sides and add the mixture of the three milks.
For the meringue: beat 3 egg whites until stiff while adding powdered sugar little by little.
Once the cake is completely cold, decorate the cake with meringue and strawberries.
