Spice It Up!

Pastel Atrapa Marido (Catch A Husband Cake)

One of my aunts sent me this recipe. It is very sweet! Don't bother to count the calories. You must have a very sweet tooth for this cake. The consistency is like that of a cheesecake. It is an uncommon and very tasty cake.


For the Cake:
1 can condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup coconut milk
500 grams flour (2½ cups)
1/2 cup sugar
3 large whole eggs
3 tablespoons margarine

For the Icing:
1 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package shredded coconut


For the Cake:
Blend all ingredients for cake in a blender.

Place in a greased and floured Bundt pan.
Bake at 350ºF until golden brown, 30 to 60 minutes depending on the oven.
Insert a toothpick to check doneness. If it comes out clean, remove cake from oven.

For the Icing:
Put the coconut milk, sugar and grated coconut in a saucepan, stirring occasionally. Bring to a boil, let it cool a bit, then pour over hot cake. The icing mixture will look like condensed milk when done.

Thanks! Mary

Hi Luz, is there any way we can give the readers a closer estimate of baking time? Is it closer to 30 minutes or to 60? Thanks

If any one is asking for the size of certain ingredients

the evaporated milk would be about a 12 oz can, some can sizes may vary but use the closest to 12 ounces

and the condensed milk would be the regular size  about 7 oz can

as for coconut flakes a regular size bag is preferred and you can reduce the amount according to your taste and sprinkle any leftovers on top of cake.

You can use any style of pan.  I used a spring form bundt pan and line the bottom with waxed or parchment paper. Since this cake has a cheesecake like consistency it will be easier to pull out of the spring-form pan.
