Occasionally my husband will ask me to bake his special sugar cookies. Well one night he asked and looking at the ingredients we had at the time it wouldn't be enough. So I looked through one of my cookbooks and found a recipe for hot milk sponge cake. It didn't require a lot of ingredients so I gave it a try. My husband loved it...until I made a powdered sugar icing and drizzled it on top. I didn't mind, but admit it would be a whole lot better if we had some fruit and whip cream to put on top instead.

Hmmm, hot milk sponge cake. I'm trying to imagine the taste. Maybe a bit like Tres Leches Cake?

Everyone...i found this
Hot Milk Sponge Cake Recipe 

Ingredients:

eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)
2 teaspoons 
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup milk
2 cups granulated 
sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (or 1/2 teaspoon each vanilla and lemon extracts)


Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly spray two (9-inch) round cake pans with vegetable oil spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Cover the eggs (still in their shell) with hot tap water. Allow eggs to sit for at least five minutes to warm them up. NOTE: It is important that the eggs be warm to the touch when they are whipped with the sugar. This gives an extra lightness to the cake. See Lagniappe below.

In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the milk and heat until the mixture is steaming.  Remove from heat.

Into a large mixing bowl, crack the warm whole eggs. Using an electric mixer, whip the eggs until frothy. Gradually add the sugar and whip on high speed until the batter is light and thick. NOTE: This takes a good ten minutes.

Turn the mixer down to low and add the sifted dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt).  Mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated into the egg batter, stopping once to scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl. Add the scalded milk and butter mixture. Mix on low speed until the batter is smooth, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Add the vanilla extract and continue mixing on low just until the vanilla is incorporated into the batter. Divide the batter equally into each prepared cake pan. NOTE: The batter will be quite thin so don’t be alarmed.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and springy to the touch. Remove from oven and place the cake layers on a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle each layer very lightly with granulated sugar. Leave the cake layers in the pan to cool for thirty minutes. When cool, carefully run a paring knife around the edge of the each cake layer, using an up and down motion, to avoid tearing the sides of the cake. Turn the layers out onto a wire cooling rack. Cool completing before serving

Serving: Cake is great served as is, but also can be used with your fresh berries.

Makes two (9-inch) round layers

You made something different even though you didn't have exactly what you wanted to put on the top!

It seems whenever we have  company is when I try something new.  I don't know why, either.

You're never too old or young to try to learn  or do something new.

I'm always on the "look-out" for new recipes.  I now have more recipes than I will ever try in this life and still I continue, lol.  I guess saving interesting sounding recipes is my hobby.
