Carnival of Genealogy: "There's One In Every Family".

This post has been submitted for the 100th Edition for the Carnival of Genealogy subject "There's One In Every Family". The carnival is hosted by Creative Gene.

I sure my family has some interesting characters I just don't know the stories.  What I do know is a recipe.  My mother use to make this for our Birthday's it is one she grew up with.  It was severed with whip cream and the fruit of the season.  When I was a kid it was bananas for me with a February birthday that was about all the fruit you got get in the old days.  One of my brothers had strawberries.  I don't remember what the other two liked. 

Hot Milk Cake
1 Cup of milk
1/4 lb of butter
4 eggs
2 Cups of sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 Cups of floor
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder

Put milk & butter in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Beat eggs with sugar & vanilla until light & creamy.  Slowly add flour that has been sifted 3 times with salt and baking powder.  Beat in hot milk & butter.  Pour into a greased & floured tube pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour & 10 minutes.


  1. This sounds simple but nice. Thanks for sharing.

  2. The cake sounds like it will taste good. Will give it a try. Your comment about not knowing the family stories, is why I blog family stories. I hope you get to know some of yours.
