Hot Milk Cake Tips
How is hot milk cake made?
Milk cake is a simple, old-fashioned cake. It is made by beating eggs until thick and foamy, mixing in the dry ingredients and then finishing with warmed milk, which gives the batter a bit of a head start on cooking. It is a good cake base that lends itself perfectly to all manner of decoration, garnishing and flavor experimentation. Watch us make it
Can I freeze milk?
Yes, you can freeze milk! Milk can be frozen for up to 3 to 6 months. For best results, we suggest using it sooner rather than later, because prolonged freezing can change the texture. Freeze the milk in a plastic or glass container, leaving some room for expansion. Better yet, make milk ice cubes
! Thaw frozen milk in the refrigerator overnight before using.
How can I ensure success with hot milk cake?
As with most cake recipes
, bring the eggs to room temperature so that they whip up nicely and provide a delicate airiness to the crumb of your cake. Additionally, for ultimate flavor and richness, use 2% or whole milk.
