Sweetened Condensed Milk Pound Cake



Total Time: 2 hrs

Servings: 16

Yield: 1 cake


1 1⁄4 cups butter (not light) or 2 1⁄2 sticks regular margarine (not light)

2 1⁄2 cups sugar

1 (12 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

6 eggs

3 1⁄2 cups flour

1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Prepare your cake pan. Coat with shortening and flour. I use a very old aluminum “tube” pan. The hole is smaller than the newer ones, but use pan of your choice.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Beat butter and sugar at high speed until soft and smooth. (I use a heavy-duty Kitchen Aid mixer).
  4. Add condensed milk and beat until well blended.
  5. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition.
  6. Add flour one cup at a time and beat well.
  7. Add vanilla and beat well.
  8. Bake 1 hour and 30 minutes. I put aluminum foil around my pan so the crust won’t get too dark. Also the last 20-30 minutes I lay foil over top to prevent the crust from being too dark.
  9. Alow to cool for 30 minutes before removing from pan.
  10. Enjoy.
