Tasty Tuesday – Hot Milk Cake

Yesterday was my birthday and the Princess told Jeff I needed a cake for my birthday.  I can’t say I minded the cake thing, even though I ate my way through 10 states.  I told Jeff just pull his mom’s Hot Milk Cake Recipe and make that it is easy and is a really good pound cake.

The princess mixing the batter.
