Hot milk sponge cake

         My son and I love chocolate cakes the most while my hubby is fond of any kind of cakes. I had seen this recipe in a cake book I got from the library long time ago.Unfortunately I did not note down the recipe. I then browsed the net and saw this cake in several blogs. Everyone had made this cake in their own way and each of those cakes looked so spongy and perfect. I then followed  the basic recipe most of them had used and the cake turned out to be spongy and delicious. My son initially did not like the white colour of the cake and said he wanted  a brown chocolate cake and not this. But when he tasted, he just loved it and gobbled a few pieces rightaway. My hubby loved it to and asked me to bake some more of this. Its a easy one and the cake is ready within an hour.
