Hot Milk Sponge Cake
|Sifted cake flour||2 Cup (32 tbs) (Swan's Down)|
|Calumet baking powder||2 Teaspoon|
|Eggs||4 , unbeaten|
|Sugar||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Vanilla/1 tablespoon grated orange rind||2 Teaspoon|
|Milk||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Beat eggs in large deep bowl until very thick and light â€” about 5 minutes.
Gradually beat in sugar.
Add flour to egg mixture, a small amount at a time, blending by hand or at low speed of electric mixer.
Bring milk and butter just to a boil.
Very quickly stir into the flour mixture, blending thoroughly. (Batter will be thin.) Pour quickly into a 13x9x2-inch pan which has been greased and floured on bottom only.
Bake at once in moderate oven (350Â°F.) for 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool slightly, then spread with Broiled Coconut Topping.
