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.
- Heat the milk and butter together in a saucepan. The butter should melt. Switch of the flame.
- Combine the cake flour, baking powder and salt together. Add the eggs into a bowl and beat well. Add the vanilla essence and then the sugar and beat the mixture. Now add the flour mixture gradually and combine to form a uniform batter. Now add the hot milk mixture. Heat the milk again if it has cooled by this time.
- Add this to the above batter. Pour the batter in the prepared tin.bake it for 25 minutes at 180c or till a knife inserted in center of the cake comes out clean.
- Cool the cake properly and invert it on a plate. Slice and serve.
