    •1 1/4 cup cake flour
    •1 teaspoon baking powder
    •1 cup sugar
    •1/3 cup oil (or unsweetned applesauce)
    •5 eggs, large (or 10 egg whites)
    •1 teaspoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    •1 cup plus 1/2 cup milk
    •1 cup sweetened condensed milk
    •1 cup plus 3/4 cup heavy cream (or fat free milk plus 2 tbsp cornstarch and 1 tbsp flour)
    •1 tablespoon rum
    •1 pinch salt
    •optional garnishes- fresh berries or cinnamon


Combine flour and baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add the eggs to the sugar mixture one at a time until well combined. Stir in the 1/2 cup of milk, then gently fold in the flour mixture a little at a time.
Pour batter into a lightly greased cake pan or baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until it feels firm and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Let the cake cool until it feels room temperature.

Turn it over onto a platter with raised edges. Pierce cake with a fork 20-30 times. Let it cool in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes.
Whisk together 1 cup milk, 1 cup sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup heavy cream and rum. Slowly pour over cooled cake. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Occasionally, spoon the milk runoff back onto the cake.
In a mixing bowl, add 3/4 cup heavy cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 Tablespoon sugar. Beat until peaks form. Spread a thin layer over the cake.
Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon or garnish with fresh berries.
