Vanilla Extract

All-Purpose Flour

Whipped Cream Ingredients Needed:

As you can see these are very simple ingredients and this cake actually comes together really easy. If you read our magazine Front Porch Life you know this delicious cake graced the Spring 2022 cover. This cake would be the perfect addition to any Easter dessert table.

We loved using the hot milk cake to make the cake portion of this cake, it was a great consistency with the whipped topping and the flavor was perfect. This cake kept well too, I made it a day in advance and we served it the next day. Just keep it in the refrigerator.

When making the cake we just added sliced strawberries and whipped topping between the layer. It was delicious!

Vanilla Hot Milk Cake

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups of white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk I used 2%
  • 10 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cups Strawberries

Homemade Whipped Topping

  • 2 cups of whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat the eggs with a mixer until lemon colored. Add sugar and vanilla and continue mixing.
  • Whisk together the flour and baking powder and add to the batter.
  • Combine milk and butter in a pan on top of the stove and heat just until butter is melted. Pour into cake batter and mix until smooth.
  • Pour batter into 2 greased 9 inch round cake pans. Bake in preheated oven for 25-28 minutes. All ovens vary so definitely check to see if it is done.
  • While the cake cools, make your whipped cream.
  • In a large bowl, beat the whipped topping ingredients (on a high speed) until cream thickens to a whipped topping consistency.
  • Remove cakes from pans and assemble your cake.
  • Add whipped topping and sliced strawberries between the layer.


I had extra whipped topping and strawberries to serve with each slice of cake

  1. Looks really delicious and I’m going to give it a shot but do you just sliced strawberries and put them on? It doesn’t really say how to assemble the cake so I was just curious.

      I just put sliced strawberries between the layer, you can really decorate it how you like. I will edit the entry to say that! It’s a wonderful cake!
