recipe for hot milk cake

I know….you might be wondering what is hot milk cake? Well, I must tell you it is the most deliciously moist and sweet dessert you will ever make that needs absolutely NO frosting whatsoever. The few ingredients you need make it plenty sweet enough!! It is hot because of the way you make it, but sweet milk cake is what we call it here. (originally published 5/15)

Hot milk cake

  1. Milk – obviously
  2. Sugar
  3. Eggs
eggs
  1. Flour
  2. Vanilla
  3. Butter
  4. Almond extract – gives it an amazing flavor

I like this recipe because you only need the simple ingredients, you need no frosting, and I can whip it together quickly.

The kids think this hot milk cake is pretty amazing too and ask for it when I haven’t made homemade dessert in a while. 😉

You have to start with the butter and milk and melt it and get it warm on the stovetop, then add the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly combine them together using a mixer.

It is best to use 2% if possible, not fat free.

If you do choose to put some sort of light frosting on top you can just use a tub of whipped topping and spread it on top, adding sliced strawberries is a good addition as well.

As I said we eat it straight out of the pan without anything else (with a glass of milk or cup of coffee) and it’s a nice sweet treat that isn’t heavy.

Sometimes I add a bit of cinnamon in with the dry mixture too. It is great to make this hot milk cake and then use it like the bottom of strawberry shortcake or with blueberries and a bit of whipped cream on top.

Great by itself though too! If you are looking for more recipes using milk we have more here. 😉

Instructions

  • Spray 9×13 pan with non stick spray and bake on 350 degrees or about 30 minutes.
