  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray

  • ½ cup SMUCKER'S® Caramel Flavored Topping

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix

  • 1 cup water

  • 3 large eggs

  • ½ cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil


  • 1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • 1 (12 ounce) can PET® Evaporated Milk

  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 12-cup fluted tube pan with nonstick spray. Place a piece of rolled-up foil into the tube part of the pan to prevent cake from spilling over the top. Pour caramel topping into the prepared pan.

  2. Beat cake mix, water, 3 eggs, and vegetable oil together in a large bowl until well combined; pour evenly over caramel topping.

  3. Combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, 4 eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla in a blender. Process until smooth; pour slowly over cake batter. While baking, the cake will rise and the milk mixture will go to the bottom.

  4. Coat a piece of foil with nonstick spray. Cover the pan tightly with foil, coated-side down. Place the pan in a large roasting pan. Pour hot water into the roasting pan to a depth of 2 inches.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs on it, about 2 hours.

  6. Place cake on a cooling rack; cool for 15 minutes. Remove foil and invert onto a serving plate. Cool for 1 hour at room temperature. Chill for 4 hours or overnight before serving.


Be careful when inverting hot cake onto a serving plate. Place the plate upside down on top of the pan, place another cooling rack on top, then invert.
