Cooking instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9x13'' glass cake pan by lightly spraying with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Separate the egg yolks and whites into two separate medium to large bowls.
  4. Add 3/4 cup sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks and mix on high speed until yolks are pale yellow. Add the 1/3 cup milk and vanilla to the yolks and mix to combine.
  5. Pour the egg yolk mixture over the flour mixture and stir gently until just combined.
  6. Use an electric mixer to beat egg whites on high speed. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and beat with mixer until stiff peaks form.
  7. Fold egg white mixture into the batter until just combined. Slowly pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 25 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  10. Combine the 3 types of milks - evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and ¼ cup whole milk in a small bowl.
  11. Once the cake has cooled completely, use a fork or the back of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the top of the cake.
  12. Slowly pour the 3-milk mixture over the cake, making sure not to miss the edges.
  13. Refrigerate the cake for at least 2 hours or overnight, allowing it to soak up the milk.
  14. When ready, whip the heavy cream and sugar on high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  15. Smooth whipped cream over the top of the cake. Sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top.
