Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Perfect cake for strawberry shortcake. I halved the recipe and baked it in a 9-inch square pan for 30 minutes. I also added 1/4 tsp. of almond extract to the batter. This will be a standard for me now. Thanks for this delicious and very easy recipe.

this is he cake my Mom always used for strawberry shortcake, try it, it's delicious!! I still make it for the strawberries, too

Delicious nostalgia. From the very vanilla warm milk baking aroma right through the difficulty of waiting until it baked cooled to dig in. I thought of my Mother the whole time. A wonderful cake. Thanks.

My family has always loved this, even my kids grew up with it. We like to use almond flavor or both almond vanilla. It really makes it yummy! It can be baked in loaf pans (2) and then used with fresh strawberries or peaches whipped cream. Sooooo good!

If you use loaf long would you bake them?

While we have not tested this recipe in loaf pans, we would estimate that a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan would take about 50 to 60 minutes.

Okay, so my mom never made hot milk cake, but that doesn't mean I'm not a fan now. This cake is good. It's got a very light and basic flavor and texture, but it's nice to eat something like that every once in a while.
