Every year...well, several times a year actually...I bake this cake. Most of the time it's for my oldest son on his birthday or just because I know he loves it so much. The rest of my family is quite fond of it too. So yea..to be honest, we all LOVE this cake! This last time, I accidentally added two teaspoons of vanilla instead of one, and we all noticed the difference! As my grand-daughter says "Gramma, this is more vanilla-wy"
This family favorite recipe was published in the upcoming Gooseberry Patch cookbook..Quick and Easy Christmas!
How cool is that??
The perfect cake for dessert, snacking, or church fellowship...or even breakfast. But always with a tall glass of milk...or coffee, for those of you who drink coffee.
HOT MILK CAKE
12 - 16 servings
2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla (I used 2)
1 1/4 cup milk
10 TBSP butter or margarine
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs at high speed until thick, about 5 minutes.
Gradually add sugar, beating until mixture is light and fluffy.
Combine flour with baking powder; add to batter with vanilla and beat at low speed until smooth.
In a saucepan, heat milk and butter just until butter melts, stirring occasionally.
Cool on wire rack.
Hot Milk Cake..in all it's sweet, moist, crumbly-ness!
