Hot Milk Cake #CakeSliceBakers
I must admit, the name of this cake, Hot Milk Cake, did not really excite me when I first saw. But upon reading the introduction to the recipe I discovered that it was frequently used as the basis for a Boston Cream Pie and decided I should give it a try. Boston Cream Pie is vanilla cake layered with pastry cream and topped with ganache. The donut form is a family favorite.
The cake is relatively easy to make - whisk together the dry ingredients, whip the eggs and sugar together, heat the milk with some vegetable oil and a little more sugar, and then combine the parts. Make sure you don't grease the sides of your cake pan so that the batter can cling to them and rise higher.
At this point, the basic Hot Milk Cake is complete. The author recommends serving with lemon curd or fruit, but I chose to make some pastry cream and create something a bit more exciting.
Once layered, I wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated for several hours. Then I made some ganache, poured it over the top and put it back into the refrigerator until the ganache set.
