  • Strawberries (for topping)

For the cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the cream:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 (14 oz.) Sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 fl oz) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum

For the whipped cream:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 Cup of Dulce De Leche


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Put the yeast and flour in a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Select the flour and baking powder together and set aside.
  3. Mix the butter and sugar together in a bowl.
  4. Add the eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract; mix well.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture 2 tablespoons at a time; combine until well blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Tap the cake several times with a fork (This is so the cake can absorb the milk mixture).

  8. Beat the whipped cream, and the dulce de leche together. Spread over the top of the cake.
