Condensed Milk Pound Cake

Another pound cake variation, this time using condensed milk. The texture of this pound cake is so soft and fluffy I am so tempted to make double batches, but got to watch the weight :D Just make sure you are indeed getting sweet condensed milk, and not sweetened creamer! I usually bought them in asian grocery stores and I noticed that they are both being sold side by side, I almost bought the wrong one myself. Another thing, I use 9”x5” loaf pan and the cake ended up filling only 34 of the pan, so if you have a smaller loaf pan, like 8.5”x4.5” I am sure it will be okay, and might even look better, just have to watch baking time which may differ slightly if using a different size pan.

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 40 mins

Total Time: 55 mins

Serves: 12-16


  • 120 gram cake flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 120 gram unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 50 gram sugar
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 175 Celcius (350 Fahrenheit). Grease and flour a loaf pan (I use a 9"x5", but I think 8.5"x4.5" should work as well), set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until white and fluffy. Add in condensed milk and vanilla essence, beat until well mixed. Add the flour in 3 batches and beat until well mixed in each addition. Finally, add egg, one at a time, and beat until the batter is smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into prepared pan, bake for 40 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  5. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from pan and cook on a wire rack to room temperature. Cut into slices and serve.

  • Sherene says:

    Hi Anita, It surely looks like a yummy cake. Does this cake remain moist after refrigeration ? Thank you.

    • Anita says:

      Yes, when I take out any leftover cake from the fridge and reheat in microwave, it's warm and fluffy again just like when it's out from the oven :)

        Thank you for your prompt response, Anita. Appreciate much 🙂. I was thinking of icing the cake, not sure if it will soften by just thawing (not via microwave). I will surely try the recipe. Thank you, once again. Cheers !
