Ingredients

Pound Cake

2 cups 500 mL butter, softened
2 cups 500 mL sugar
6 eggs, separated
1 can 300 mL Regular or Low Fat Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tbsp 15 mL vanilla extract
3 cups 750 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp 1 mL salt
2 cups 500 mL prepared frosting
food colouring/candied sprinkles for decorating

Glaze (optional)

1 1/2 cups 375 mL icing sugar
2 tbsp 30 mL milk or water
1/2 tsp 2 mL vanilla extract
food colouring, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Grease two 8½” x 4½” (1.5 L) loaf pans and line with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl until light textured. Add 1½ cups (375 mL) sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add yolks, one at a time, beating after every addition. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Mix in flour and salt. Batter will be thick.
  3. Beat egg whites in a separate large bowl until light and foamy. Gradually beat in remaining ½ cup (125 mL) sugar and continue beating until whites are firm. Fold into batter.
  4. Divide batter between the 2 pans.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre of cake comes out clean. If top gets too brown, cover loosely with foil. Cool on rack. Freeze 1 loaf for future use.
  6. Assembling sandwiches: Slice cake into 16 slices. Trim crust and slice on the diagonal to make 2 triangles. Spread 2 tbsp (30 mL) icing on slice and place another slice of cake on top. Dip all sides into candied sprinkles.

Tips

  • To make the party sandwiches on the cover, use a 2” (5 cm) cookie cutter to cut 2 pieces from each slice of cake. Assemble as above. To make glaze, combine icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir until mixture is smooth. Spread glaze on top.
  • Kids will have fun decorating the sandwiches.
  • Use double the icing if icing both cakes.
