Make Ahead Tips
You can soak the cake in the milk mixture up to a day ahead and top it up to 2 hours ahead
I have made this about half a dozen times now. It is a simple recipe and great summer dessert. For the cake, I swap the 1/2 c heavy cream for regular milk and just use a pint for the whipped cream topping. I have received rave reviews on this and frequent requests to make it again.
This is such a delicious dessert. I made the classic vanilla version. My family is already asking me to make it again soon. We didn’t find it to be overly sweet at all. It was just the perfect end to the meal. I can hardly imagine a dessert I would like more than this one.
Over all it's a delicious and simple recipe.... with there was like a warning to go easy on the condensed milk if you're not really into sweet cake, so I would recommend to just add a third of the condensed milk to the soaking mixture and taste to see if you need more or if you should add heavy cream to cut out a bit of the sweetness BUT DELICIOUS
