Sometimes the craving for cake hits you, and you scramble around your kitchen to find that the only thing remotely close to satisfying your urge for a slice of cake is a near stale butter croissant you bought for breakfast 5 days ago.
It’s in situations like this that I have a cohort of quick recipes that I can use to whip up something yummy. This Condensed Milk cake is one such recipe. It literally requires minimal ingredients, time and effort. It will also utilise that can of condensed milk you’ve had sitting in your pantry for a while, whilst you work out why you bought it in the first place.

The texture of this cake is quite a dense, however it’s taste is the opposite, light and refreshing. It goes well with a cup of tea or coffee, and you can easily add a berry compote or coulis of some kind to add extra sweetness.
