Hot Milk Sponge Cake

 

My husband loves cake. If it has fruit on it all the better. For years I would make angel food cake and serve it topped with berries and ice cream or whipped cream.  Then we found this great Hot Milk Sponge Cake recipe in a 1973 printing of Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book.  The cake had similar texture with a different flavor and gave us another option.

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk

2 tbsp butter

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Heat milk and butter until butter melts, keep hot.  Using an electric mixer, beat eggs until thick and lemon colored, about 3 minutes or until it folds like ribbons as it pours off the beaters or a spoon.
