Sweet Treat Friday – Milk Sponge Cake

This cake reminds me of my Grandmother’s Angel Food cake, as well as pound cake. It is not as light as the Angel Food cake but it reminds me so much of it. The taste is a cross between the two cakes, with a buttery flavor and light sweetness. Very easy to bake, and I see no need to frost it. My kids will enjoy this just warm from the oven. Recipe came from a friend, Called Milk Sponge Cake.


2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter


Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease the bottom only of a 9x 13 baking pan. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl beat together eggs and vanilla. Mix with Sugar until completely blended. Pour mixture into the dry ingredients, it will be very thick. Heat milk and butter in sauce pan till boiling and quickly stir into the thick batter. Mix till thoroughly blended, (it will no longer be thick) Pour batter into prepared pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean in center.
Let it cool completely. We like eating this while still warm, wait about 10 minutes and cut into pieces before serving. Goes prefect with a nice tall glass of milk, wonder if that’s why it’s Milk Sponge cake? 🙂
