Hot milk cake, an old-fashioned treat, is fine-grained, moist, high-rising, and wonderfully tasty. It can be enjoyed as is, in all its buttery glory; or paired with the icing of your choice — or fudge topping or thick caramel sauce, as shown here.
Serve in squares, as is. Or top with icing or sauce. If you use caramel sauce, a sprinkle of flaked sea salt is a wonderful addition.
