If you love eating three milk cakes, or you’re maybe planning to serve it on the upcoming Day of the Dead celebration, I bet you’re going to enjoy today’s post. I just made one and used an additional ingredient which took it to a newer version. As you know, I always love to discover new taste and make my own version of the foods that I eat and cook (most of the time). From adding chilli to the traditional recipes to adding other herbs and spices, and seasonings; here I am again. But this time I’m using cereals to make my own version of three milk cake.
Yes, I said it right and you read it right: CEREALS. I used the General Mills Cinnamon Crunch for my recipe today, who would have thought that was possible with three milk cakes?! It may give it a little difference in color because of Cinnamon Toast Crunch as its main ingredient, but it doesn’t compromise the taste. It still tastes good, and oh—smells good and yummy!
Though it already smells like cinnamon, as the Cinnamon Toast Crunch name implies, I still decided to add a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon ground. You can omit adding it if you doesn’t want it. For the cooking time, I only spend around 30-40 minutes to prepare the cake before I finally baked it for another 30 minutes. I waited for another 2 hours for the cake to cool down so I could put it in the fridge.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Three Milk Cake Recipe
1 cup melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup caster sugar
2 cups General Mills Cinnamon Toast Crunch (ground with a rolling pin)
½ cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
2 tsp. cinnamon ground (optional)
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
Milk mixture ingredients:
1 cup whole milk
½ cup evaporated milk
1 cans 395g condensed milk
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, then grease a 20 cm x 30 cm baking dish/pan.
- In a large bowl, combine and whisk the sugar, vanilla, butter, and eggs until creamed.
- In another bowl, combine the plain flour, self-raising flour, Cinnamon Toast Crunch ground, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon ground.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture and combine them well.
- Pour it into the prepared greased pan. Bake it for 30 minutes, but be sure to check it until the toothpick comes out clean.
- While cooling down the cake, work on the milk ingredients. Combine them together (the 3 milks) in a medium bowl, then pour it over the cooled cake.
- Put it in the fridge, uncovered for at least 4 hours or overnight. Enjoy!
See, that’s easy and creative by using Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Perfect to serve on the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos)! But if you want to be more creative with the taste, or simply want to try other ingredients aside from Cinnamon Toast Crunch that even your kids will love and drool, the General Mills Lucky Charms will be a good one to try, too! Feel free to use this recipe, you can always enjoy Three Milk Cake with Cinnamon Toast Crunch or use Lucky Charms, instead.
