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…:)

    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!
