Hot Milk cake is delicious, fluffy, delicate cake made with Hot milk, flour ,eggs and sugar. This is one of the perfect accompaniment with Tea/Coffee or munch whenever you feel hungry. This cake originates from US and differs slightly from Sponge cake wherein egg is beaten as whole and has baking powder as leavening agent.

If you want to make this as Vanilla cake, then increase the amount of Vanilla essence or for Chocolate flavour, add in Cocoa powder to milk while heating up. Cake flour lends superior texture to the cake , you can use APF instead or mix of APF and whole wheat flour. Alternatively prepare cake flour at home, check my tips and tricks section

*You can prepare this cake in regular cake pan too. All the ingredients mentioned in the recipe are at room temperature
