Ingredients that you will need

Preheat oven to 325.

If you don't have baking powder mix 2 tsp cream of tarter with 1 tsp baking soda. This makes baking powder!

(Dry ingredients) Measure and mix cake flour, salt and baking powder

In a medium bowl with your hands until well incorporated.

(Wet ingredients) on high speed mix sugar, vanilla, eggs, oil, & milk until thoroughly mixed and somewhat frothy

Slowly add milk and oil last

Mix about 2 mins

On low speed add the flour mixture into the egg

1/4 c at a time to maintain the frothiness.

Prep to bake: in a 9x13 greased glass baking pan, pour batter

Bake for 35-40 mind at 325 or until clear toothpick comes out of center.

Prepare to soak: once cake is at room temperature, poke the cake all the way through with a fork

Prep milk syrup: in a bowl, whisk the 3 milks until evenly mixed. Use a scraper to make sure the condensed milk isn't stuck at the bottom. (Seems like a lot but cake will absorb) (opt. Rum now)

Soak cake: Pour the mixture over the cooled cake. (might loosen or flatten - that's okay)

cover the cake and refrigerate for three hours or overnight for best results.

(Over night cake shown) Take the cake out of the fridge that would be 85 to 95% absorbed. if too much liquid at 3 to 4 hours add more time.

Cake topping: On high-speed mix the whip ingreds until the cream forms stiff peaks. Spread layer of whipped topping evenly over the cake. serve immediately or store up to 12 hours in the fridge Enjoy

You can top cake in the pan or flip on to a raised edge aluminum, so syrup won't spill. If you don't eat right of way and put back in fridge then eat before 12 hrs. After that topping may break down.
