Hot Milk Cake

This fluffy vanilla cake gets it name (and flavor!) from the scalded milk in the batter. Martha made this recipe on episode 705 of Martha Bakes.

    The recipe was awesome. I had to adjust the cooking time a bit due to the fact that the batter was already at an elevated temperature. Just shortened baking to be about 15 to 10 minutes less than the recipe says.

    Dry and tasteless. Waste of time &ingredients. My first Martha flop, so disappointing.

      I have to agree. Every other hot milk recipe calls for an entire stick of butter and a cup less of both flour and sugar. No wonder it's dry.

    This cake was very easy to make and tastes wonderful. The hot milk makes all the difference.
