Ingredients for Cake

1 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
5 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

for liquid filling
2 cups whole milk
l (l4 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

Using electric mixer, cream butter and sugar; add eggs and vanilla and
mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk flour and baking soda together, then
slowly add to the butter mixture until completely blended. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for
30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the whole, condensed, and evaporated milks together
to create the liquid filling. When cake is done, use a toothpick to poke
holes all over the top and pour the filling over the cake.
Allow the cake to sit and cool while fully absorbing the three milks.

Top with whipped cream and fresh fruit of your choice
