Instructions

For Sponge Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

  2. Grease a 9x13" rectangular baking pan or glass dish

  3. Beat the egg yolks on high speed for 5 minutes or until pale yellow and creamy

  4. Add the sugar and keep beating for 4-5 minutes more

  5. In the meantime, whip the egg whites until medium peaks form

  6. Remove the yolks from the beater and carefully fold in 1/3 of the egg whites, alternating with the flour. This step needs to be done very slowly as to maintain the volume from the egg whites

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean

  8. Remove from oven and let it cool

For Chocolate Milk

  1. Melt chocolate

  2. Mix with evaporated milk, condensed milk, and crema Mexicana. Cool in the fridge. The mixture should be runny

Assembly

  1. Poke cool cake with holes all over. Make sure you poke it down to the bottom

  2. Pour cool chocolate milk all over the cake. Refrigerate to allow the milks to soak the cake

  3. Top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate (optional)
