Milk Cake

Hot milk cake can be fabulous, but the recipe is not for the timid. Expect a couple attempts that fail to rise before getting it right. Beating the eggs very well is important.

Milk Cake


  • 250 ml milk
  • 120 ml butter
  • 5 ml vanilla extract
  • 450 ml cake flour
  • 10 ml baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 450 ml sugar


  • An hour before baking, take eggs and butter out of the refrigerator to reach room temperature.
  • Heat together milk and butter until butter melts. Cool to just warm. Add vanilla.
  • If you sift the flour, do so after measuring. Mix dry ingredients.
  • In a large bowl beat the eggs until lemon-colored — this could take 5-10 minutes.
  • Add sugar slowly, beating well. Add the dry ingredients.
  • Add milk mixture very slowly, folding it in by hand toward the end.
  • Divide the batter into 2 greased and floured 9 inch (230 mm) round cake pans.
  • Bake about 30 minutes at 175 °C (350 °F).
  • Cool on racks for 10 minutes (you may need to run a knife around the edge first) then turn out to cool.
  • Frost with mocha icing, other icing, or with strawberries.
