- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 500 milliliters heavy whipping cream

- Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks with ¾ cup of sugar until they become creamy and nearly white, approximately 4 minutes. Add 1/3 cup of milk and the vanilla, beat for one more minute.
- Add the flour, baking powder and salt little by little while continuing to beat the mixture. Beat well, approximately 2 minutes.

- Pour the batter into a greased and floured 30 x 15 baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 180 C or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Remove the cake from the oven and let cool on a rack for 15 minutes.
- Prick the surface of the cake with a fork, making deep holes.
- Mix the condensed and evaporated milks with 250 ml of the cream in a bowl. Pour it little by little over the cake, allowing the liquid to enter the holes.
- For the icing: Blend the rest of the cream with 6 tbsps. of sugar in the blender. When it forms a firm icing, after approximately 3 minutes, spread it over the cake.
