      2 cups flour

      1 tbsp. baking powder

      6 eggs, divided

      2 cups sugar (1 for cake, 1 for meringue)

      1/3 cup milk

      1 tsp. vanilla

      1 can Goya Sweetened Condensed Milk (14 oz.)

      1 can Goya Evaporated Milk (Nela) (12 oz.)

      3 cups heavy cream

      3 egg whites

      2 tbsp. lime juice

      Directions
      1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
      2. Grease and flour 13″x9″ baking pan.
      3.

      Combine the flour and the baking powder and set aside.
      4. Using an electric mixer beat the 6 egg whites until frothy. Add sugar gradually and continue beating until stiff peak forms, about 5 minutes.

      Beat in the 6 egg yolks, one at a time. Alternately beat in flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Stir in vanilla.

      Pour into a greased and floured 13×9-inch pan. Bake at 375°F. for 30 to 35 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean.

      Remove cake from oven. Cool 10 minutes and poke holes into cake using a 2-pronged meat fork.
      5. Meanwhile, combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, and heavy cream.

      Place 1/2 of this mixture in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir in the remaining mixture. Pour slowly over poked cake until absorbed.

      Chill at least 1 hour.
      6. To make meringue*, beat the remaining 3 egg whites on top of a double boiler, until frothy. Gradually add the remaining cup of sugar.

      Continue beating until stiff-peaks form and the meringue is shiny, about 5 minutes. Beat in the lime juice. Spread over top of cake and refrigerate until ready to serve.

      Store any leftover cake in the refrigerator.
      * Note: You can substitute a 1/2 pint of whipped heavy cream for the meringue.

      Serves 8
