1/2 tsp salt

Creaming cake batter

4. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the mixer, on a low-speed setting, a bit at a time. If the mixture starts to curdle or split, add a spoonful of your sieved flour, keep on adding the eggs, and a bit of flour if necessary until all the eggs are added.

5. Add half the milk with half of the flour, keeping the mixer on a slow speed. Once combined, add the remaining milk and gently fold in the remaining flour until combined.

6. Transfer the cake mixture to the greased and lined loaf tin or mini cake pan.

Place in the oven for 1 hr if using a loaf pan or 15 - 20 minutes for mini cakes.
*** Please do test if the cake is done by using a skewer and poke it in the middle to see that it comes out clean. Every oven is different and cook times may vary a little.

7. When the cake (s) is done, take it out of the oven and leave in the cake tin until cool enough to transfer to a cooling rack. It is also nice to drizzle some of the dulce de leche over the top!

Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
