    Melissa Spangler's Note:

    I cheat by baking the cake from a box, but nobody will ever know it's not homemade when you use this recipe. I usually double this recipe for a 9" cake. My husband's very favorite.

      I used this recipe because I had the condensed milk available, and not the evaporated. Even though I was negligent and left it to cook the first couple of minutes without constant stirring it still tasted great. There is a little bit of cooked yolk flecks here and there, but doesnt change the flavor. JUst the presentation. So try this easy recipe, but have all your ingredients ready (like all good cooks should).
