Aren’t there so many things that are considered breakfast and dessert? It’s so confusing! Like coffee cake, crumb cake, and apple slices. Heck, there’s even breakfast cookies! Well, here’s a new one to add to your list. Hot Milk Cake. Have you heard of it?
Speaking of old recipes, about a year ago-last summer- I was going through all of my grandma’s recipes. MAN, does she have a lot! And that is where I came across a bunch of these really, really old cookbook. I feel like everyone just looks for their recipes on the internet now and cookbooks are pointless. But there is just something about using a cookbook that gives me a little satisfaction. Plus, they seem a little bit more credible than some people on the internet. But what do I know?
This recipe is quite versatile. It’s a pretty basic cake, nothing too fancy. However, it does hit the spot. I mean when you’re eating it, you don’t get that feeling that you ate a ton, like how you might feel after eating a coffee cake or crumb cake. It feels like a nice, light cake with that perfect amount of sweetness.
Go ahead, give my grandma’s recipe a try! It’s surprisingly tasty.
and no, you don’t serve it hot. It’s like a billion degrees here today and you would have to be crazy to ask me to heat anything up. Also, I would consider this more of a breakfast food-it was kind of hard deciding what section to put this under on my recipes page but yes, here’s breakfast!
