Milky Girl Cake

I have different recipes on my site, but I don’t have one as quick, as simple and as easy as this one. The cake layers are made with 4 ingredients, which don’t even need to be whipped, just mixed with a fork. The frosting is also very easy, but nevertheless delicious.

The name of the cake, Milky Girl,  has a little bit of a story behind it. In Germany, where this cake originated,  the condensed milk can has a girl on it and the name of the condensed milk is “Milky Girl”. Since the cake layers are based on condensed milk, the cake was called Milky Girl as well.

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • Ingredients for Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 16 oz cream cheese 2 packets, room temperature
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or emulsion
  • Also:
  • 1½ cups raspberries for the top of the cake
  • 1½ cups raspberries , halved (to put between layers of the cake (optional))
  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 4 Tbsp jam strained

  1. Preheat oven to 350F with the baking rack in the middle. Line a jelly roll baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. How to make the Condensed Milk Cake Layers for Milky Girl Cake:
  3. Add condensed milk to a bowl. In a separate bowl stir together four and baking powder. Add eggs to the condensed milk and stir until smooth. Add flour mixture and stir until smooth again.
  4. Draw a 9 inch circle on the parchment paper. If using the jelly roll pan you can probably fit to circles. Flip the parchment upside down. Pour ⅓ cup batter int he middle of the circle and spread into a thin layer, trying to stay within the drawn circle. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until the middle is baked through. It helps if some one can help you hold the parchment in place while you spread the batter around.
  5. Remove from parchment paper as soon as you get the cake out of the oven, scrape off any stuck bits of cake. Reuse the parchment paper to bake the remaining batter in the above manner. You should have 7 cake layers total.
  6. How to Make the Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting:
  7. Add powdered sugar, cream cheese and vanilla to a bowl and whip until smooth and no chunks of cream cheese are visible; stop several times to scrape the bottom of the bowl.
  8. Add heavy whipping cream and continue whipping until the whip cream is fully incorporated and the cream is fluffy.
  9. Reserve 1 cup of frosting until later (for decorating).
  10. To assemble the Milky Girl Cake:
  11. Put a dab of frosting on your serving board/platter. Place the first cake layer on top and press to adhere. Spread ⅕ of frosting into an even layer, place the second layer and do the same. Repeat until all frosting and cake are used up. Adding about ¼ of halved raspberries to each layer would be great, but it is optional.
  12. Use about ⅔ of cup of the reserved frosting to cover the sides and top of cake. Put a thicker layer around the sides, but a very thin layer on top.
  13. To decorate:
  14. Fit a pastry bag or a sandwich ziplock bag with a star tip (#35 Ateco) and fill it with the reserved ⅓ cup frosting.
  15. While holding the cake in one hand (or on a raised surface such as cake stand), fill the other palm of your hand with unsweetened shredded coconut and press it against the sides of the cake. Have something to catch the coconut shreds when they fall back down, like a baking sheet or a large plate. Go all around, covering the sides and around ½ inch of the top edge of the cake with coconut. Pipe stars all around the edge of the cake with the prepared piping bag.
  16. Put a layer of raspberries, open side up all inside the piped edge. Fill each opening with raspberry sauce or strained jam.
  17. Cover the cake and refrigerate overnight, for the cake layers to soften.
