How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, beating just until blended.

Step 2

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Step 3

Beat egg whites at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 25 to 28 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Step 5

Meanwhile, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, 1/2 cup whipping cream, 2 tablespoons honey, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl until blended.

Step 6

Pierce top of hot cake generously with the end of a wooden spoon. Gradually pour milk mixture over cake, about 1/3 cup at a time, spreading to edges. (Allow mixture to completely soak into cake between batches.) Let stand 2 hours. Cover and chill 2 hours.

Step 7

Beat remaining 1 cup whipping cream at medium-high speed until foamy; add remaining 3 tablespoons honey, beating until soft peaks form. Spread over top of cake. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

The bottom part of the cake was hard. I didn't burn it. It was just hard. It really "deflated" after it cooled. It was lovely when I took it from the oven. All the "milks" poured on did not help the flavor. The whipped cream frosting was the best part, yum! I won't ever make this again. It was expensive with 7 eggs and 2 canned milk products. Not worth the bother.

Just made it for a company lunch - AMAZING!!! I made it exactly as listed in the recipe but sprinkled cinnamon on top at the end.
