Condensed Milk Pound Cake

Condensed Milk Pound Cake - A lightly sweet and super moist cake that is perfect for breakfast or dessert! #MillstoneCoffee

We enjoyed some delicious #MillstoneCoffee along with this Condensed Milk Pound Cake as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars by Crowdtap.

My husband Jack and I will both admit it – we are major coffee addicts! Neither of us can go without our morning cup of Joe!

So this past weekend…our coffee maker broke! Both of us were DYING until we could get to the nearest coffee shop – which was en route to the closest store so we could buy a new coffee maker as soon as possible!

Condensed Milk Pound Cake - A lightly sweet and super moist cake that is perfect for breakfast or dessert! #MillstoneCoffee

There’s no doubt about it, both of us look forward to a great cup of coffee every morning, and one of our favorites is Millstone Coffee! All Millstone brand coffees are slow-roasted to perfection from 100% Premium Arabica Beans – the best available – and it totally shows in Millstone Coffee’s fantastic flavor and aroma!

And if you are coffee lovers like us, Millstone has two new gourmet flavors you’ve got to try: their House Blend – a well-balanced blend with a flavorful, smooth finish, and their Mayan Black Onyx – a dark, full-bodied blend with a rich finish!  (You can also see a complete list of other Millstone Coffee flavors right here.)

I’m partial to the smooth flavors of the House Blend while Jack loves the bold Mayan Black Onyx! And any of Millstone’s gourmet coffees will go perfectly with this Sweetened Condensed Milk Pound Cake recipe we’re sharing with you today!

This sweetened condensed milk pound cake is moist, dense and lightly sweet. It’s perfect served for breakfast (along with some delicious Millstone Coffee of course!) – and it’s also wonderful served for dessert with fruit or any other kind of sweet topping.  Enjoy!

Condensed Milk Pound Cake

Condensed Milk Pound Cake - A Family Feast
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf


  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Spray an 8½ x 4½ inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on high speed until light and fluffy – about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each egg until well blended. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla to the butter mixture and mix until combined.
  5. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture (increasing the speed of the mixer as needed and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed) until well combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes, then turn the pound cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Oooh that sounds interesting! I do make a pound cake, I’ll have to try it this way. And coffee is perfect with pound cake by the way.

  2. Oh man, I definitely need to try this! Pound cake is a staple in my family!

  3. This cake looks perfect! I have never used condensed milk in pound cake but it looks like I need to give it a try!

  4. I’m sitting here drinking my cup of coffee and pining for a slice of this pound cake! I can’t wait to try it!

  5. I love that coffee, and your pound cake is to die for!

  6. I most certainly am a coffee lover as well and these sound delicious!

  7. I wanted to make this and slap some of my homemade orange marmalade on it!

  8. Pound cake makes me weak at the knees!

  9. This is probably the best looking pound cake I have ever seen. It is SO perfect in colour, texture and I bet in taste as well! I definitely have to recreate your recipe.. and hopefully mine turns out as good as this!

  10. It’s around this time of year that we start making our holiday pound cake – full of booze, with the shelf life of fruit cake. After it’s made, we wrap it tightly and store it until December – allowing the flavours to really meld. It’s a torturous wait! Of course, if I made your version, it might tide me over until then…

  11. This looks absolutely perfect! I love that you used condensed milk!

  12. I am a huge coffee lover too. This pound cake looks perfect for enjoying with a cup — YUM!

  13. I love the used of condensed milk in this recipe…the pairing with coffee is pure perfection! Makes it suitable for breakfast. 🙂

  14. I use sweetened condensed milk all the time. Never used it in a cake like that. I need to try it! Sounds awesome…

  15. Patrick Bradley :

    Not too sure about pound cake for breakfast. More of an ol farm style chicken and bacon and eggs myself. That is of course if I have time for food! Coffee is usually all I need in my tummy to get me goin

  16. With coffee always.

  17. I made this cake earlier in the week, and it is a wonderful pound cake – the texture is just perfect. It doesn’t need anything else, no butter, jam, fruit, etc. It is great all by itself. I have a friend who wants this cake for her birthday cake, but we are having quite a crowd, and I’m thinking of doubling the recipe and baking it in a bundt pan. Has anyone tried this? Would it work? Thanks for the help.

  18. Just wanted to report that doubling the recipe exactly and baking it in a bundt pan worked to perfection. I baked it at 325 for about an hour and 20 minutes, and it was a little more brown on the outside than I would have liked, but the inside was moist and delicious. I sifted some powdered sugar on the top and everyone thought it was great. Thanks for an enduring recipe.

  19. all i can say is your poundcake recipe is the best! I used it as a base for my own marble cake recipe.just add a tsp of condensed milk,2 tbsp of hot water and 2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder to make a paste.then scoop half of the pound cake batter and mix both of them to turn into a chocolate part of the cake.it turned out to be perfect!thank you so much!

  20. I was worry before I start the pound cake because of the sugar and the condensed milk.
    Thinking was too sweet.
    Come out just perfect.
    I highly recommend this recipe just did it 2 hours ago,and is gone.

  21. Hey…!! thank you so much for easy simple yet wonderful recipe… I was never good at baking… but now I can bake cakes 🙂 🙂 …. ohhh… thanks to you… keep posting such recipes 🙂 🙂

  22. OMG,, It’s so good…. Best cake ever lol I just tried it with wholemeal flour and,, It’s just yam~~ moist and right sweetness!!

    Thank you so much !!

  23. I just wanted to say this was so moist and delicious. Certainly one of the best pound cakes I’ve ever had.
    I made this with my four year old niece and she had such a fun time. She did almost all of it herself and she was so proud when it came out of the oven. Thank you so much.

  24. Hi Martha,

    I’m from India and I came across your recipe by chance and tried it!! only one word YUM!! its the richest and close to actual pound cake I have baked so far…. Thanks a ton… I do have few questions:
    1. My cake is a bit buttery when I touch… is that how its supposed to be? Coz yours looks perfect.
    2. I used a bread loaf pan for baking so not sure if that caused my cake to brown faster in like 20 mins itself and I had to reduce the temperature and kinda had difficulty is getting my cake cooked. Could the pan be the issue?
    3. Last …. How to I convert this pound cake into something like a lemon or strawberry pound cake?

    Thanks a lot for the recipe and for your answers 🙂

    – Sanchitha

    • Hi Sanchitha – So glad you enjoyed the recipe. My cake was very moist but I wouldn’t really describe it as very buttery. I has been a while since we made the recipe but I believed we used a glass pyrex loaf pan to bake it – glass loaf pans sometimes bake faster than metal (not sure if yours was glass or metal) and I do remember the outside browning while the inside baked. I haven’t used this recipe for strawberry or lemon pound cakes so you’ll have to play around a bit yourself. I would imagine adding some diced strawberries to the batter as written should work fine (the extra moisture might require additional cooking time) and for lemon – maybe adding some lemon zest and swapping out some of the vanilla extract for lemon extract or lemon juice? Please let us know how it comes out! I hope that helps! Martha

  25. I made this cake and I am totally rubbish at making cakes. This cake came out absolutely gorgeous. The only problem was that it was abit too sweet. Can I use less sugar, or will that affect the texture?

    • Hi Kymora – We’ve only made this recipe as written. But I think you could try reducing the sugar a bit – please let us know how it comes out!

  26. simple moist and soft texture. very lovely. i enjoyed this cake 🙂

  27. Kat (Schatz Delight) :

    Been looking for a best pound cake recipe for quite some time. I must give it a try. Indeed looks perfect.

  28. I made this cake today. DELICIOUS!! Super moist and soft. To top it off the little left over condensed milk, I drizzled over the cake. This cake will be a staple in my books 🙂

  29. I just tried this recipe and it’s amazing.it is too sweet according to my taste but my family liked it.i baked it for 45 min and it turned out great.thanx for the recipe.😊

  30. I only have a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. I don’t mind a shallower loaf ( unless there are some other drawbacks) but I am wondering if I should adjust the temperature and the time to bake the cake?

  31. Love the pics!
    Love your space 😍

  32. I love this recipe! I’ve made it a few times now. Making it again today for my daughters cake stall at school.

  33. This recipe is awesome! However, I think adding the 1/2 cup of sugar turns out a bit too sweet for me. If I want to skip the sugar do I need to change other ingredients as well?

    • Hi Jen – We’ve never made this without the added sugar so I can’t say for sure how it will come out and/or what changes would need to be made (if any). If you try it again without the sugar, please let us know how it comes out!
