Vintage Hot Milk Cake

The first time I tried a hot milk cake, I was probably 10 or 12 years old. I was just a little gal, and my grandma’s friend made the cake when we went to visit. I remember biting into the cake and immediately falling in love with all of the classic and delicious flavors. It had a chocolate ganache frosting, and it was so good I could have eaten it with a spoon.

I was inspired to make this cake because of that memory. So here we are, I’ve made this easy cake recipe, and I am thrilled to be sharing it with you.

What Is A Milk Cake 

A milk cake is an old fashioned style cake that has… Milk in it.

Adding milk gives it a creamy and rich flavor and texture. There are various types of milk cakes out there. Some of them have multiple kinds of Kate milk, such as whole milk, evaporated milk, or even condensed milk. My milk cake only requires one type of milk, and that is whole milk. 

Why Is It Called Milk Cake 

A milk cake got its name because back in the day, they used milk to add fat and flavor to cakes. Your grandma probably made this cake because her grandma probably made this cake. They’ve been around for a really long time, and it stands to reason because they’re so delicious.

Storing Cake 

You can either store the cake in the refrigerator or keep it in the pantry. Either way, at room temperature or chilled, it is an excellent option for this cake. The most important thing you need to do is keep it tightly wrapped. Make sure the lid fits well, and it will last 3 to 5 days.

Before serving the cake, always check it over and make sure that there’s no mold, there’s no strange odor, or there’s nothing that looks off about the cake. If anything does seem odd, go ahead and toss it and make a new cake. 

Can You Freeze This Cake 

Yes, you can absolutely freeze this vintage cake. After the cake has cooled and frosted, place the hot milk cake in a storage container. Add a layer of plastic wrap or tinfoil on top hot milk cake in a storage container. Then add a lid and place it in the freezer for up to three months. When you’re ready to eat the cake, take it out and place it in the refrigerator the night before. Or sit it on the counter for a little bit until it has thawed. Once it’s thawed, it’s ready to eat.

You might even enjoy the cake when it is still slightly frozen.
