The cake was a hit at our dinner yesterday! I wanted to share the recipe with you. It belonged to my grandmother on my dad’s side.

Ingredients:

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 stick butter
Pinch of salt
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat eggs well, then add sugar a little at a time. Heat milk and butter until butter is dissolved. Cool, then add to egg/sugar mixture alternately with flour. Mix well. Add salt and vanilla. Mix. Then add baking powder slowly until blended.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes in two 9-inch cake pans (greased & floured.)

Icing:

1/2 cup butter
1 pound confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

add milk one tablespoon at a time to preferred consistency.

Then eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snack…:)

  10. My Aunt Margaret, the best cook in the family, made a wonderful hot milk cake–so often it was a staple in the kitchen. Never, however, was it iced. Just "plain" great with a good cup of coffee. I tried making it once or twice, but for whatever reason, it never turned out like hers–perfect every time!

  11. Thanks for sharing your family cake recipe. Can't wait to try it! Have a fabulous day. Blessings, SusanD
