Hot Milk Sponge Cake

Kelly Kingett


This was another family recipe given to us by our grandmother. Each family member makes it their own by adding something special to it instead of vanilla. Give it a try to see what you can come up with!

How to Make Hot Milk Sponge Cake


  1. Beat eggs until very fluffy and light colored. Add sugar slowly, the add vanilla.
  2. Mix together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. Heat butter and milk on the stove, and remove from heat when the butter has melted. This can also been done in a microwave.
  4. Alternately add milk mixture and flour mixture into egg mixture. Mix on low speed, then pour into a greased and floured fluted cake pan, or angel food pan. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes.
  5. *you can substitute orange, lemon, or almond flavoring for the vanilla, or you can use a combination of several to give it your own signature flavor. My grandmother used orange and/or almond, but my mom used vanilla & almond.
  6. My mom always iced this cake with chocolate icing, but my grandmother would glaze the cake with and orange & almond glaze. You can even sprinkle this with powdered sugar or fresh fruit for an easy and delicious way to serve this.
