Patience will definitely come into play here when it?s time to soak the cakes with the 3-milk-mixture. It?ll seem like way too much soaking liquid for the amount of cupcakes you have, but you really do need to use all of it up. And yes, this takes a little time and a good dose of patience as you wait for the milk mixture to soak in. Then again, you can use this time to contemplate how crazy it is that a tiny little cake could absorb SO much liquid!
"DELISH!!!! A little time consuming but well worth it! However I would double the ingredients, this batch only made 9 cupcakes. I also added a splash of orange extract to the heavy cream and dusted with dutch cocoa and cinnamon. OMG heaven in my mouth!"- Giftedgoddess

Preheat oven to 325. Line muffin tin with paper-lined foil liners.
Whisk egg whites, baking soda and salt with electric mixer on medium until soft peaks form. Add yolks and sugar and mix on low until thoroughly combined. Fold in melted butter using a flexible spatula (it?s a foamy batter, so you wanna use something thin and delicate). Add flour in four batches, folding gently until combined.
Divide batter into muffin cups, filling each about half way. Bake until light golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and poke holes into cupcakes using skewers or fork. Or whatever you?ve got.
Whisk together the evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream. With cupcakes still in the muffin tin, brush the milk mixture using a pastry brush. Repeat until all the liquid has been used. Allow cupcakes to absorb mixture, at least 30 minutes or up to 1 day in the refrigerator, wrapped tightly with plastic wrap. Bring to room temp before serving.
