Pet Milk Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 3-layer 8-inch cake
For the Evaporated Pet Milk Cake:
  • 1½ cups cake flour
  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 2½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks, 8 ounces) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup evaporated milk, undiluted.
  • 4 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Evaporated Pet Milk Frosting:
  • 1½ cups (3 sticks, 12 ounces) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
To make the Evaporated Pet Milk Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray 3 8-inch pans with baking spray, set aside.
  2. In a bowl whisk together both flours, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Lower the speed, add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after every addition. Scrape down the bowl and bet until incorporated.
  5. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  6. Lower the speed to stir, add in the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the evaporated milk in two parts, mixing until the ingredient are just incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  7. Give the batter a final mix by hand. Pour batter evenly between the pans and bake for 28 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. Do not over bake these cakes.Let them rest in the pans for 5 to 10 minutes before inverting them onto wire racks to cool completely.
To make the Evaporated Pet Milk Frosting:
  1. Beat the room temperature butter in a stand mixer on a medium high speed until it is light and fluffy. About 3 to 5 minutes
  2. Stop, scrape the bowl, and add the vanilla and tiny pinch of salt
  3. Turn mixer back on. On the lowest speed add the powdered sugar a cup or two at a time. When the frosting gets too thick drizzle in the evaporated milk. Continue this process until completely incorporated and the desired thickness. Scrape the sides down as needed.
  4. Beat the frosting a final time on a high speed for 20 to 30 seconds.
To assemble the Cake:
  1. If the layers have a dome, level off the cakes so each layer is flat.
  2. Frost each layer with the Pet Milk frosting and stack the next layer on top. Repeat with the next layer.
  3. Do a light crumb coating on the outside of the cake and let the cake chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Frost the cake with a final coat.
