OMGosh, you are kidding me! I cannot believe I just found a recipe using a can of Eagle Brand in a cake!
Eagle Brand, to me, should be in it’s own food group. I would probably even like liver if it was soaked in Eagle Brand. This recipe was in the old cookbook that had the “possum” recipe. I have to have some friends over so I have an excuse to make this wonderful cake.
1 lb (yep, you heard right, a whole pound) softened butter (do not use margarine as I will turn you in to the butter police)
2 cups sugar
1 can Eagle Brand Condensed Milk (there is only the one size)
3 cups flour
1/2 teas salt
2 teas vanilla
1 teas lemon extract (I will probably use butter extract as I like that combo of flavor with the vanilla)
Sift flour and salt and set aside. Grease and flour 10″ tube pan. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Continue beating, adding eggs, 1 at a time. Add flour and Eagle Brand alternately, blending just until well mixed. Add flavorings last.
Pour into pan and bake at 325 preheated oven for 1 hour. Reduce oven to 300 and bake about 25 min more, or until cake tests done.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over cooled cake if desired. Or set out different toppings, such as fudge sauce, fresh strawberries, ice cream or whipped cream when serving.
