  • 2In a separate bowl, beat egg whites and 1/4 cup sugar until mixture forms peaks. gently fold egg whites into the batter.
  • 3Pour batter into a 9" X 13" buttered pan and bake for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean
  • 4Allow cake to cook somewhat. Using a fork, poke holes throughout the top of the cake.
  • 5Combine evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk and 1/3 cup cream to create a milk syrup. Slowly pour 1 cup of the mixture over the cake to allow the cake to soak it up evenly. Use additional milk syrup as desired to adjust cake moisture or to add to plates when serving.
