Ingredients for Cake

1 ¾ cups cake flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick butter

1 cup sugar

5 whole eggs

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk

1 cup half and half

Ingredients for Toppings

2 cups heavy cream

Preparation

01Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil and flour a metal pan and set aside.
02In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
03In a mixer, beat butter until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Decrease speed and gradually add sugar, stopping to scrap down bowl if necessary. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Mix in vanilla. Add the flour mixture in three batches, until just combined.
04Transfer batter to prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake on middle of rack 20-25 minutes or until done and lightly brown. Cool cake in pan for 30 minutes. Poke the top of the cake with a fork or skewer. Allow cake to cool completely before adding glaze.
05For the glaze, combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, and half and half in a large mixing bowl. Pour over cake, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
06For the topping, beat heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla until peaks are formed and thick. Spread whipped topping over cake. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve with strawberries.
