I came across a recipe for a condensed milk pound cake that caught my attention. I’ve always liked the flavor of condensed milk.

Condensed milk makes a lot of stuff taste better. Condensed milk on toast, condensed milk drizzled on top of shaved ice, condensed milk in tapioca milk tea.

This was really easy to put together. It came out quite moist, and had the subtle taste of condensed milk. I do wish that the crust layer was a little thinner. I tried to take it out of the oven sooner, but the inside was not yet cooked.

It’s not one of my favorite recipes, but it was pretty good and I enjoyed trying it. You can view the full recipe here.

  1. I’ve tried a few of your cake recipes and they have all come out great. The most recent was the condensed milk pound cake. The outside got  a bit dark. I think I left it to cook for too long.  I served it with raspberries and whipped cream and it was a hit!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed this! If you use a dark baking pan, it might cook a little too fast, which could cause the outside to be a bit dark.

  2. Im from Puerto Rico and i love to bake. I found this recipe and it came wonderful. my husband have a sweet tooth and love it. I will definitely try it again, but this time with a twist of puertorican Coquito.

  3. hello kirbie – it’s me again – you can buy the metal filters at Thuan Phat (for sure)or Ranch 99 (I think). we’ve used this vietnamese espresso (trung nguyen – you can find this at ranch 99), but in a pinch, will use cafe bustelo or the one in the yellow/orange can (forgot the name). Or instead of using the metal filters, just brew the espesso in your coffee maker. faster and easier. but it’s so much fun to put in the ground coffee, pour the boiling water and watching it drip!

  4. i’ll try making this pound cake this weekend. i have several cans of condensed milk lying around (we get it for bert’s coffee whenever he likes to have it VN style).

    • Ooh, I’ve never tried making my own VN style coffee but that’s a really good idea. We get it a lot when we go to restaurants.

  5. Maybe tent it loosely with foil the last half of baking might help? It sound good.

    • I was thinking that too. I’ll try that if I make this one again. Though looking at the original recipe, it seemed like she had a really dark crust too

  6. Thanks, I think I shall this weekend 🙂

  7. That looks good! I’ve tried a few pound cake recipes, and I can’t seem to get it right. But maybe because I keep comparing them all to Entenmann’s…
