A Baked Slice -Hot Milk Sponge Cake


This slice is a true sense of happiness when it just melts in your mouth. My mom used to make these when I was a kid. I remember a time when I demanded for a cake which had a house built on top. I have a very faint memory but I think it was inspired by a Disney cake 😉 That cake decades back was a challenge to find in any bakery and my mom clearly did not master the art of frosting. But she did make a cake with a house on the top. A house of baked bread sandwiches and a sandwich triangle on top. Biscuits for the door and polo loops for the windows. It even had a lolly-pop chimney 😀 I was so excited that I would not eat the cake but just the”house”. Those good old days! This recipe definitely helps me relive those and I would love to share the same with all my great friends here. Hope you feel the joy the same way as I do!


  1. All purpose flour – 1.25 cups
  2. Egg – 2
  3. Sugar – 1 cup
  4. milk – 1/2 cup
  5. Butter – 5 cubes
  6. baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  7. baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon
  8. Vanilla Essence – 1/2 teaspoon


Step 1: Powder the sugar and sift it in a bowl. Add to it sifted flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Step 2: In another bowl, take 2 full eggs and beat them at medium speed for about 4 minutes. The eggs become very light and frothy.


Step 3: Warm the milk and put the butter into it.


Step 4: Add the flour mixture in parts to the beaten egg and mix. You can use the whipper to mix at the lowest speed.

Step 5: Add the milk butter mixture and mix. Add vanilla essence and mix.


Step 6: Grease the cake tin with butter or ghee. Do not dust it with flour if baking in microwave as it prevents the cake from rising.

Step 7: Bake them in the microwave for 23-25 minutes at 160 degrees. The hot milk sponge cake is ready. Serve it with a cup of evening tea.



Tip:You can make any flavor cake using the same recipe. Instead of vanilla, add the desired flavor essence and color if needed.

Do try out the chocolate cupcakes made using the same recipe.

Happy Crafting !!
