Hot Milk Cake
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 c up milk
10 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13 9 x 2 inch baking pan and set aside.
In medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder; set aside.
In large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs at high speed until thick and lemony colored. Between 5 and 10 minutes. Do not under-beat eggs or cake may not rise. Gradually beat in sugar and vanilla until mixture is light and fluffy.
Fold in flour mixture just until combined.
In small saucepan, heat milk and butter until hot, but not boiling, stirring occasionally
Add hot milk mixture to cake batter, stirring until combined.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes of until cake tests done when a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack.
Frost as desired.
My personal favorites - a caramel frosting or just dust with powdered sugar and serve with some fresh fruit.
