Need hot milk cake recipie
[Return to Topics]

I am looking for an old recipie that was called "hot milk cake". I had it back in the 70's and have lost it. The cake was similar to a pound cake but you heated the milk and melted butter and added them to the egg,flour mixture. It also called for almond extract. If anyone has this please e-mail or post. Thanks

Lenore, what's the difference between cake flour and regular flour? I have not seen it in the stores here. I'd like to try that cake.

Cake or pastry flour is a fine-textured, soft-wheat flour with a high starch content. It makes particularly tender cakes. I think all purpose flour can be substituted. Here is another recipe that uses all purpose. This one is for a smaller cake 9X9. I am pretty sure all pupose will do if you cant find cake flour.

Yield: 9 Servings

1 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Baking powder
2 Eggs
1 c Sugar
1/2 c Milk
2 tb Butter or margarine
Broiled coconut topping*

Oven 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan.
Combine flour, baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. In a small mixer
bowl beat eggs at high speed 2 minutes or till thick. Gradually add sugar;
beat at medium speed 4 to 5 minutes or till sugar dissolves. Add dry
ingredients to egg mixture; stir just till combined. Heat milk with butter
till butter melts; stir into batter and mix well. Turn into pan. Bake in a
350 degree oven or 20 to 25 minutes. Frost while warm. Serves 9. * Broiled
topping in separate recipe, or use your choice of toppings.

Thank you Lenore. Could bread flour be used? That I have, since I make all my own bread. I do not use the self-rising flour.

and oh lordy those amish girls can cook! did you ever eat over there? woowee! my mouth waters just thinking about it. one time this maybe 10-yr-old gal sat on a swing - me & her dad could mention any kinda ingredient and she'd recite a memorized recipe for it. couldn't even see over the bowl but she knew what went in there! papa was rightly proud. :)
