Hot Milk Sponge Cake

This is a super easy dessert if you ever need to make something quick with ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. I served it with powdered sugar and strawberries to keep it lower in calories and fat but I'm sure you could make it nice and yummy with a rich frosting of your choice.

2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon backing powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter

1. Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a 9x9x2-inch square baking pan; set pan aside. Stir together flour and backing powder; set aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed about 4 minutes or until thick. Gradually add sugar, beating on medium speed for 4-5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture; beat on low to medium speed just until combined.

3. In a small saucepan heat and stir milk and butter until butter melts; add to batter, beating until combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cake in a pan on a wire rack.
