CAKE: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 10-inch (12-cup) Bundt pan with vegetable oil spray. Measure 1/3 cup condensed milk for cake; reserve remaining for Frosting.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to creamed mixture.
Stir in vanilla. Beat at low speed to blend. Beat at medium speed 5 minutes. Stir in hot water just until blended. Do not overbeat. (Batter will be fairly thin.) Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 50 minutes, or until cake springs back in center when touched lightly with finger or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.
