  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk 396 grams (1 can)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams, divided

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • cups heavy whipping cream 341 grams, cold

  • Once cooled, create small holes throughout the entire cake with the back of a narrow mixing spoon. Be sure to not poke all the way through the cake. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine the sweetened and condensed milk, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir until combined.
    14 ounces sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pour the sweetened and condensed milk mixture over the cake. The mixture should fill all the holes created previously.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes for best results.
  • While the cake is chilling, make the whipped cream: In a large bowl combine the heavy whipping cream, powdered, sugar, and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract. Using a hand mixer, beat the mixture on high until it thickens and has the consistency of whipped cream, about 3-5 minutes.
    1½ cups heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Using a spatula or other tool, spread the whipped cream over the entire cake in an even layer, then drizzle the caramel sauce and toffee bits evenly over the cake, optional.

  • Be sure to not poke all the way through the cake when you make the holes. They should be about 3/4 of the way through the cake.
  • The holes should be around 1 inch apart. Too close together and the cake will be too moist, too far apart and there may not be enough filling.
  • Let the cake cool completely before poking the holes.
  • Nutritional information does not include optional garnishes.
Storage: Store better than sex cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months (without the whipped cream).
