With just the right amount of sweetness, Condensed Milk Pound Cake also makes an indulgent breakfast with a cup of coffee. It would be perfect for cubing and forming into a trifle for the 4th of July with lots of strawberries and blueberries and whipped cream.

Only your basic pound cake ingredients are needed for this cake plus a can of sweetened condensed milk.

Sweetened Condensed Milk Pound Cake is perfect for dessert or breakfast.


Unfortunately the recipe does not use the entire can of sweetened condensed milk, and yes, it is a little bit aggravating to have some left in the can.

But just think of all the ways you can use those leftovers.

Sweetened Condensed Milk Pound Cake has just the right amount of sweetness and goes wonderfully with fresh berries.


My favorite way is to grab a spoon and go to town. Sweetened condensed milk does taste like the nectar of the Gods so why not just eat it plain?

Or you can add it to your coffee, smoothie, or oatmeal. Drizzle it on pancakes or waffles. Or cut some fresh peaches in half, drizzle them with sweetened condensed milk and roast them until the sugar starts to caramelize.

  1. I made this today and realized I had no almond extract so I used lemon in it’s place. I’m going to glaze it with the leftover milk and lemon extract. I can’t eait for it to come out of the oBen!h

  2. Made this cake because I had the ingredients on hand. It got rave reviews from the ladies at a luncheon. The texture is fantastic. Took one of the suggestions of a reviewer adding almond extract to the leftover condensed milk, drizzled it on top of the cake, and sprinkled the cake with slivered almonds. This will be my go to cake recipe. Can’t wait to make other flavors like lemon. Thank for a great, easy recipe.

  3. I just found and purchased chocolate flavored and caramel flavored condensed milk….think these would make a good change?

  4. Oh my word! This cake is absolutely delicious. I didn’t realise until I was putting the ingredients together that I didn’t have vanilla extract… so I used coffee instead. I was afraid it wouldn’t turn out well but it was fantastic! My mother and brothers loved it (and devoured it…) Thank you for this yummy recipe!

  5. This is a recepie I had from my Grandmother that,i lost years ago…so glad to get it back. I makes good crunchy top….thanks

  6. This is a brilliant recipe. I have made it a few times, just subbing gf flour. It always works and it is always yum. Today I added zest of 1 lemon to batter. Then mixed left over condesed milk with the lemon juice and used it as the icing. YUMMY!

  7. This is my first time making a pound cake. I tried the recipe exactly and the result was delicious. My husband and I loved it. Thanks!

  8. delicious! i love a classic pound cake and you’ve managed to make this version sound and look even better! great suggestions for the rest of that condensed milk too. 🙂

  9. I will admit that pound cake is my favorite dessert…I like it better than anything with chocolate! This version sounds so good, Christin! I’ve never thought to add sweetened condensed milk to it before…love this gorgeous cake!
