Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch tube pan



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and baking powder. Heat milk in a small saucepan until just boiling, then remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Beat eggs until foamy, then add sugar. Continue beating on medium-high speed until thick and lemon colored. Add vanilla, reduce mixer speed to medium and add hot milk in a steady stream. Quickly beat in flour mixture.
  3. Pour into a 10 inch tube pan. Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly tapped.

The final result is absolutely delicious, but after experimenting, I found that you only need one cup of sugar and a dribble-more of milk. Anymore and it's too sweet and a tad too dry. Once you get your preferences on the ingredients right, though, it's addictive!

DELICIOUS!!! I followed the recipe to a T except I added 1/4 cup butter to the milk while heating (this was how my father always made it, and he was taught by his neighbor's grandmother). This made it moist, but still incredibly light. I baked it in two round pans for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. I made a chocolate ganache with 1 cup of half and half and 8 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate and, after allowing it to cool for a minute, spread that on top. DELICIOUS DELICIOUS DELICIOUS!!



People shouldn't critize the recipe if they have changed it in any way or form. The unsatisfication may be caused by their own modifications. I personally really liked this cake. And I followed the instructions.
