2) In another bowl using a hand mixer, beat together egg yolks and 1 cup of sugar until stiff ribbons trail behind beater, then beat in vanilla and set aside.
3) In a third large bowl using a hand mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form and gradually add in remaining 1/4 cup sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
4) Add yolk mixture to dry ingredients and beat together. Add in milk and melted butter and beat until combined. Gently fold in egg whites until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into middle of cake comes out clean, 30 minutes. Let cool.
5) Meanwhile make filling: In a medium bowl whisk together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, milk and vanilla. Using a fork, poke holes all over cake, then pour milk mixture evenly over cake. Cover and place in refrigerator until all of the mixture is absorbed, at least 1 hour.
