    1. HEAT oven to 350° F. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with no-stick cooking spray with flour. For Cake: BEAT 5 egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar in a large mixer bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until almost stiff. Blend in 1/4 cup milk, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 cups flour and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder. Wash beaters.
    2. WHIP 5 egg whites in a small mixer bowl on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until firm but not dry. Gently fold egg whites into yolk mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 34 to 36 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes.
    3. LOOSEN edge of cake with a knife before removing cake from pan. Invert cake onto deep serving plate. Using a two-pronged meat fork or skewer, pierce surface of cake several dozen times. In a small bowl, 2/3 cup blend milk, 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk and 2/3 cup evaporated milk. Slowly pour over cake, allowing it to be absorbed before adding more. Repeat until all the milk is used. Cover cake and refrigerate overnight.
    4. For filling and topping: CHILL beaters and small mixing bowl in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Cut cake in half horizontally. Remove top, spread bottom layer with strawberry preserves. Replace top of cake. Beat 1 cup cream and 2 Tbs powdered sugar in small bowl at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Frost cooled cake. Decorate with sliced strawberries and mint, if desired.
