  5. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Mix with a hand mixer.
  6. Beat egg whites with a hand mixer or stand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  7. Add egg whites to cake batter slowly stirring in.
  8. Pour cake batter into baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile, place ingredients for condensed milk into a small pot and heat on the stove. Bring to a boil then quickly reduce heat to a simmer and stir occasionally for 20 minutes, and let cool down.
  10. When cake is done remove from oven and allow to cool. For quicker cooling, remove cake from baking dish and place on a wire rack.
  11. Once cake is cooled, place back into a baking dish. Poke holes throughout the cake. Make it holy!

Whipped Cream
  1. Place ingredients for whipped cream into a bowl (preferably a cold bowl), and using a hand mixer or stand mixer, whip it up until fluffy like whipped cream (about 3-5 minutes).
  2. Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Decorate the Cake
  1. If using a different dish for serving, move cake to that serving dish. If using the baking dish, leave it in the dish.
  2. Spread whipped cream all over cake.
  3. Decorate with your choice of toppings or serve without toppings. If using fruit like strawberries and peaches, you can thinly slice them.
