Pound cake with sweetened condensed milk is a rich and delicious dessert with an old fashioned sweet vanilla taste. This is truly one of the best pound cake recipes out there, with rich and flavorful ingredients. You can either add whipped cream or spread cream cheese icing over the top.

This is one of those sweetened condensed milk recipes that is a keeper. The sugary syrup is the most amazing treat, even on it’s 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. 

Sweetened condensed milk makes this pound cake so much richer.

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 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!

What size loaf pan? 8 x 4 x 2 1/2 in. 8 1/2x4 1/2x2 1/2 9 x 5 x 3 inches

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!

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

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.

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!

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.

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

Julie Pollitt

Monday 26th of February 2018

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.

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

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.
