Great Grandma\’s Hot Milk Cake

Recently, my mum and I were going through one of our family reunion cookbooks and came across a recipe for Hot Milk Cake. My mum informed me that my great grandma used to make it, and that it was a simple treat that was made during the Depression-Era. So of course, my mum and I put on our favorite aprons and headed to the kitchen to whip up a batch of hot milk cake cupcakes, and the result was too addicting not to share.
