Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan, and set it aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl with a handheld mixer), cream the butter, confectioner’s sugar, salt and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, and mix again until smooth. Add the flour and xanthan gum, and mix until just combined. The batter will be light and airy. Scrape into the prepared pan, and smooth into an even layer with a wet spatula.
Place the pan in the center of the preheated oven and bake until the edges are light golden brown, the cake begins to pull away from the sides of the pan and a tester comes out clean (about 20 minutes). As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, poke 8 to 10 holes evenly spaced throughout the surface of the cake. Set aside to cool briefly.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk, buttermilk and plain milk into a measuring cup (or other container) with a pour spout, and whisk to combine well. Pour the milk mixture evenly over the top of the cake. Cover the cake, and place it in the refrigerator to chill until the milks are completely absorbed into the cake (at least 2 hours, or up to overnight).
Before serving, whip the heavy whipping cream on medium-high speed in the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl with a handheld mixer) until soft peaks form. Either spoon the whipped cream over the top of the entire cake, or on top of each slice of cake right before serving.
