This Is Good

The method for making a hot milk sponge cake has been around for a long time. It is an old fashioned method which involves adding melted butter and hot milk into the cake batter. This results in light and airy, and higher rise and finer sponge.

Bake Along #74 - Hot Milk Cakes with Strawberry and Cream.  I'm baking along with hosts Zoe of Bake For Happy Kids, Lena of Frozen Wings, Joyce of Kitchen Flavours, and other baking enthusiasts in this blog hop.

  1. Hi Lian,
    Your hot milk cake looks fluffy soft ^-^!
    Think I will try baking this recipe another time using a baking tray instead of individual cupcake liners.

  2. Your cake turns out lovely!
    Great idea to bake them in a baking pan and slice to assemble. Love it that you served it with lots of strawberries!

  3. I agree with you. This is GOOD! I like the idea of using a baking pan. Thanks Lian!

  4. Lian, this looks really good!!!

  5. good evening lian! initially i thot of using a round pan to bake them..then i was thinking whether how should i cut them after that...then later decided use to use the muffin pan. Always like your presentation, like something served from a posh restaurant! :D

  6. I like your version best, as I can really see the crumbs from your photos…great shots!

  7. Hi Lian,

    I like your cake. It is a good idea to bake this cake in a rectangle pan too. I reckon that this recipe is fantastic!


  8. This looks amazing! I have always wanted to make a cake like this, but have never got around to it.
