-= Ingredients =-
5 ea Eggs ; Separated

1 cup Self-Rising Flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 ea 14 ounce Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 ea 12 ounce Evaporated Milk
1 cup Milk
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

3 ea Egg Whites

-= Instructions =-
1. Grease and flour a 8 x 12 inch pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Separate 5 eggs, and beat the egg whites in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add 1 cup sugar to the egg whites, beating constantly. Add the yolks one by one, beating well after each addition. Stir in the 1 teaspoon vanilla. Sift the flour, and stir it into the egg mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake for 20 minutes, or until done. Cool.

3. Blend the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, milk, and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Pour this syrup over the cooled cake until the cake can absorb no more syrup. Usually, you’ll have a bit more than half of the syrup remaining.

4. Beat 3 egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually add 1 cup sugar, and beat until stiff peaks form.  Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Frost the cake.

5. Refrigerate cake before serving.

6. Garnish with halved berries and mint, if desired. Serve with sliced berries.

7. Serve cold.

NOTES : It is a delicious cake with a special syrup on it, and a meringue frosting.  This cake requires refrigeration, and is served cold.
