Sweetened Condensed Milk

This is one of those sweetened condensed milk recipes that is a keeper. The sugary syrup is the most amazing treat, even on its own and it’s such a great addition to many desserts.

I usually buy about ten cans around the holidays and make fudge for friends and family, along with this pound cake.

We almost fight over who gets to lick the can when I am making the easy pound cake recipe.

The kids will circle around me waiting until I first get the lid off of the sweetened condensed milk can, and then try and get the remaining drops inside, and, they have me to contend with – I want it all! 

But, we do share with each other when it comes down to who gets the last lick–most of the time!

  1. Hi what kind of icing is shown in the picture?

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Connie!

      It’s a dollop of whipped topping. It’s the Aldi’s version of Cool Whip. Tastes delicious on top!

  2. I would like to make this is tube pan. Do I need to adjust ingredients

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Pat! I have not made it in a tube pan. I’ve only used the glass bread pan. I am not sure if you need to adjust anything. I would think you could bake it with the above measurements in a tube pan. If you do, let me know how it turns out!

      1. Pat, From what I can tell of amount of batter, it would probably bake up nicely in a bundt pan. I am like you I was thinking of a tube pan but am almost sure a bundt pan would work

        1. Julie Pollitt says:

          Hi Pam! I think a bundt pan is a great idea, too! I bought one at the thrift store not long ago. I should get it out and try it in that.

  3. Nikki@SoulfullyMade says:

    This looks amazing! I am a pound cake fanatic!!!

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Thanks so much, Nikki! Me, too! I have always loved pound cake. 🙂

  4. I’d never seen a pound cake made with condensed milk, so I gave it a try. I added some lemon zest and lemon juice, it was amazing!

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Dee! That’s great to hear. I bet the added lemon zest and juice was delicious! Thanks for sharing, and I will have to try it with lemon soon!

    2. @Dee, how much lemon zest and lemon juice did you add?

  5. Yum! I love that the ingredient list is short!

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Suzanne! I love short lists, too!

  6. Thanks for sharing! Does this last very long? I’m excited to try it!

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Vanessa! We ate it pretty fast, so it didn’t last long at our house. Keeping it in the fridge will help it last a little longer. I think it would start to dry out after about three days. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know how you like it.

  7. Adela Olivero Grassi says:

    Looks delicious but I have a question : why adding sugar if you are already using sweet condensed milk?
    Thank you

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Adela! It is a lot of sugar, but it makes the pound cake even sweeter. But, even with the sweetened condensed milk and sugar, it’s not overly sweet. I’m curious how it would taste without the sugar, though! Thanks for the idea.

  8. This was a fantastic cake! We took a few slices to an elderly neighbor then the rest magically disappeared…. Here are my husband’s words, “This is the best pound cake I’ve ever had. I usually don’t like pound cake because it’s dry and bland but this one was awesome.” Win-Win-Win!

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Becky! Wow! Super excited to hear what your husband had to say about the pound cake. Glad that he liked it so much! I love to hear what y’all think about the recipes! Funny, it magically disappears around here, too. (Wink-wink). That was very sweet of you to share with your neighbor.

  9. Could I possibly make this in a bundt pan? Do you think it would be enough for one?

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      It’s worth a try! If it’s a smaller bundt pan I think it will work. If it’s a large one, it might be too big for the recipe. Let me know how it turns out.

      1. I used the only bundt I had, it was a large one, so the cake itself was a little short and it was dense, so I don’t know if it was the pan or what! Still taste great!!

        1. Julie Pollitt says:

          Hi Emily! Glad to hear it still tasted great! Thanks for coming back and sharing your results!

  10. What size loaf pan?
    8 x 4 x 2 1/2 in.
    8 1/2×4 1/2×2 1/2
    9 x 5 x 3 inches

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Brenda!

      I used a glass loaf pan that was 9 x 5.25 x 2.75. I got out a ruler and measured the side of my glass loaf pan and it was really about 3-inches. You would need at least 3-inches because it will rise in the pan when it bakes.

      Hope that helps!

  23. Do you know how many cups of batter it makes.. This would help us decide what size Bundt pan we could use.

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Belinda, I would guess there’s around five to six cups. I baked it in a 1.5 quart loaf pan, if that helps any.

  29. Charlene Perdicizzi says:

    Could I use cake flour instead of all purpose?

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Charlene, I haven’t used cake flour for this recipe, but I think you can do that. If might be a little fluffier, but I bet it will still taste great! Let me know how you like it if you try it that way.

  30. Was wondering if I doubled the recipe, could I use a 13×4 pullman loaf pan. Its the only size pullman I have and was hoping to use it because I prefer the shape. I do habe 2 9×5 loaf pans should you think it wont work. Thanks and be blessed.

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi John, I haven’t doubled the recipe like that before, but I think it would probably work. You might have to cook the pound cake a little longer. I would check with a cake tester when the time is up.

      You might also want to put tin foil on the top toward the end if it seems like it’s getting to dark on the top. Let me know how it turns out. I hope you love it!

  38. Linda Harbison says:

    Hi
    I just made this cake. I had to cook it longer because the middle wouldn’t get done. I almost burned it. It really had a great taste though. I don’t know what I did wrong. I probably will make it again.
    My husband loved it. Thank you for sharing your recipes.

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Linda, I am glad that your husband liked it! What size pan did you have?

  39. Donna Morgese says:

    This is one of the best pound cake recipes I’ve ever tried and I’ve tried many. It has the exact texture I wanted. I’ve already made a second one lol
    FYI. My bake time was 45-50 minutes. I also sprinkled some course sugar on top.
    Enjoy.

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Donna! That’s so great to hear. And, what a great idea to sprinkle course sugar on top. Yuuummm! I am trying that next time.

  40. Loretta B. says:

    I just made this pound cake and it is in the oven. After I made it I reread the recipe and in the instructions it said baking soda. I used the baking powder. I hope it is powder and not soda.

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      It will probably be fine, it just might not rise as much. How’d it turn out?

  41. Someone said that they saw the recipe called for baking soda instead of baking powder.
    I see your recipe calls for baking powder.
    Is it baking powder that we should use?

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Hi Barbara,

      The recipe calls for baking powder. Sorry for any confusion!

  42. I tried this recipe and it turned out great! I made a few additions, cinnamon,lemon,and walnuts,also when baking cakes, I always use cake flower. Delicious!! Is definitely a go to if you enjoy a nice coffee cake

    1. Julie Pollitt says:

      Sounds delicious! Thanks for the ideas!
