Hot-Milk Sponge Cake

1 cup sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
2 tbl. butter
½ cup hot milk
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat the eggs until thick and lemon-colored, about 3 minutes at high speed. Gradually add the sugar, a spoonful at a time. Heat the milk and butter in the microwave, keep hot. Sift the remaining dry ingredients. Add flour mixture to mixer bowl, stir until blended. Add the hot milk mixture, beat well. Add the vanilla. Bake in an 8” or 9” square greased pan at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.

This is the best cake, bar none. Split a piece and serve with sugared berries and whipped cream. Or just eat it plain.
