Myrna's Birthday Cake

Great recipe for birthday cake, Hot butter milk sponge cake - my kids love it. Making the sponge is quick, it's all the icing that takes the time.


Sift Dry ingredients together THREE times. Beat eggs and then add sugar until thick and creamy. Add vanilla. Fold in the dry ingredients slowly, meanwhile have the milk and butter in a pot in the boil. When the dry ingredients are all folded in, and the milk and butter has frothed up, quickly pour in frothing milk mixture into cake mixture and mix well. Pour into 2 greased large tins and bake in the oven (400 degrees or gas mark 6) for 15 - 20 mins. When cold ice with Carol's butter icing
