The repertoire of homemade biscuits with traditional flavor we find many recipes in which we take advantage of different dairy products, starting with the typical yogurt with which almost all of us started in confectionery. It is also a sweet resource to dispose of leftover cream, condensed milk or, as in today’s case, homemade evaporated milk.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be homemade evaporated milk; We can always buy it on purpose for this sponge cake or take advantage of half a can that we may have left over from another preparation. Perhaps we could replace it with a mixture of liquid kitchen cream and milk, or just with light cream, although we cannot fully vouch for the results.
Evaporated milk makes it possible to prepare a sweeter and more substantial cake than just using plain milk, but lighter than with pure cream. We like to flavor it with lemon and/or orange zest, but you can also use vanilla, cinnamon, lavender, or whatever spice mix you like best.
Preheat the oven to 170 ºC with air and grease or line a mold with parchment paper. removable round about 20-23 cm in diameter. The wider, the shorter the cake will come out and will bake sooner.
Arrange the eggs in a container with the sugar and the finely grated lemon or orange zest and beat with stick blender a few minutes, until the sugar dissolves and a fluffy pale cream forms.
Add half of the flour sifted with cornstarch and yeast and mix gently. Add the oil and evaporated milk, stir and add the rest of the sifted dry ingredients. Gently mix until there are no lumps.
Pour into the pan, break any bubbles that may come out and bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until well browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. wait a bit before unmolding and letting cool on a rack. Sift with icing sugar only when cool.
