Lori's Hot Milk Cake
From Lori


My Nana (great-grandmother) had a wonderful recipe for  hot milk cake.   She was born in North Carolina near the end of the 1895, and she was an amazing cook.  Everyone in my family has this recipe, but I have her cake pan!  She always made it in an angel food cake pan (the spindle in the middle).  I've seen so many recipes on your site that are similar, but I haven't seen any with lemon before.

 1 Tbsp. lemon (or extract)

 Slowly mix hot milk into the mixture.  Mix well! Grease and flour pan - grease spindle first, then the rest.  Flour the spindle first, then the rest. Bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour. Cool on rack. This cake is best served warm with butter melting into it.
