  Categories: Cakes, Ethnic
       Yield: 1 servings
     3/4 c  Flour
       1 ts Baking powder
     1/2 c  Plus 2 tb sugar
            A pinch salt
       3 lg Eggs
     1/2 c  Milk
       1 ts Vanilla
            Milk mix:
      12 oz Evaporated milk
      14 oz Sweetened condensed milk
       1 cn Whole milk
            = use empty condensed milk
       1 ts Vanilla
       1 ts Rum; (1 to 2)
            Chopped pecans
            Or cinnamon to sprinkle on
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-inch round
   cake pan. Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and
   pinch of salt in medium bowl. In another bowl, stir
   together the eggs, milk and vanilla lightly. Mix with the
   dry ingredients and stir well. Scrape into the cake pan and
   bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is light golden
   and springs back when touched in the center. Take cake out,
   cool 15 minutes, then remove from pan so cake doesn't
   stick. Let cool completely.
   When cake is cooled, cut it in half horizontally with a
   long-bladed knife.
   To make the milk mixture: put the evaporated, condensed and
   whole milk, and vanilla and rum, if desired, into a large
   mixing bowl or blender and blend well.
   Lift the top half of the cake off and set aside. Put the
   bottom half of the cake onto a larger serving dish with a
   rim (to catch any excess milk). Slowly pour enough of the
   milk mixture onto the bottom half of the cake to saturate
   it well. Replace the top half over the soaked bottom half
   and carefully pour more of the milk mixture over the top.
   This procedure should be performed slowly and you may have
   to wait a bit for the milk to soak into the top half, then
   pour some more.
   The cake should be allowed to soak and chill for at least 2
   hours in the refrigerator. (It is even better left to soak
   in the milk overnight.) Cut into pie-shaped wedges and
   garnish the top of each serving with chopped pecans or a
   sprinkle of cinnamon. If there is milk left over that the
   cake didn't soak up, pour into a small pitcher and serve
   alongside the dessert.JM.
