1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
7 eggs, separated
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
1-1/2 cups whipping cream, divided
5 tablespoons honey, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, beating just until blended.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Beat egg whites at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Pour batter into a greased and flour 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

Bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Meanwhile, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, 1/2 cup whipping cream, 2 tablespoons honey and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl until blended.

Pierce top of hot cake generously with the end of a wooden spoon. Gradually pour milk mixture over cake, about 1/3 cup at a time, spreading to edges. (allow mixture to completely soak into cake between batches.). Let stand 2 hours. Cover and chill 2 hours.

Beat remaining 1 cup whipping cream at medium-high speed until foamy; add remaining 3 tablespoons honey, beating until soft peaks form. Spread over top of cake. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
