How much do you like homemade biscuits…! Whether it is the most classic, the yoghurt one with measures 1,2,3, the original avocado sponge cake with yoghurt and walnut glaze or any other sponge cake recipe, they always seem perfect for a family breakfast or snack. Today we want to show you how to prepare the sponge cake with condensed milk and lemon cream, the snack with a sweet and sour flavour that hooks you. It is a spongy and somewhat moist cake that accompanies a glass of cold milk on summer afternoons.
The combination of condensed milk and lemon allows the mixture to thicken and set after being initially cut. I like it a lot in desserts such as creamy lemon desserts, to make ice cream, and for other preparations in which sweet and acid are combined. Today we will use it together with the flour and the eggs to make a different dough from the classic biscuits, which also works very well after going through the oven. The taste, very sweet and very acidic at the same time, is surprising and leaves no one indifferent, as I say in the heading, hooks those who try it.

This recipe is quite particular in its preparation and nothing like traditional milk cakes. So we start by beating the egg yolks with the oil and then adding the condensed milk. Worked with the rods, we will obtain a homogeneous cream. Next, add the well-beaten egg whites.
It is time to incorporate the pastry flour that we will have mixed with the chemical yeast or impeller. We add it little by little until the mass of our cake is formed. Here comes the curious part, which is the issue of lemon juice. By adding the lemon zest and juice, our dough will seem to be cut initially, but if we keep stirring, it will thicken noticeably.
Once we have a homogeneous dough again, fill a previously buttered cake mould and bake at 170ºC for 45 minutes until the surface is golden, and we can insert a skewer or a knife, and it comes out clean. It is important not to open the oven while the cake is being made and when finished, let it cool down before cutting it.

Condensed milk cake: a very easy recipe for a great breakfast or snack
The condensed milk cake I bring you today is one of those recipes used and used over time because they always turn out well and easily. Which makes it a “bottom of the closet” cake for daily breakfasts or when we want to look good by doing something sweet for a snack with friends.
With only four ingredients, you get a very tender sponge cake with a spongy texture that lasts perfectly for several days, well wrapped. And even though it contains condensed milk and a priori, we can think it will be excessively sweet. The truth is that it is very balanced and not at all cloying.

We will start by adding the condensed milk to a bowl. We do it by hand or in the glass of a blender. Add the four eggs and beat with a whisk until smooth. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees with heat up and down.
Melt the butter in the microwave for a few seconds and add it to the mixture, beating again with a whisk. Add the flour with the yeast incorporated. If we don’t have this, we add those grams of flour and a sachet of chemical yeast. We integrate the flour and pour the mixture into a mould greased with anti-release spray or a little butter.
Bake for 50 minutes at 160 degrees and in the middle of the oven. Once cooked, let it rest in the pan for 10 minutes and remove it to a wire rack to finish cooling.
