Hot milk sponge cake recipe

This raspberry celebration cake is filled with custard cream kisses, and crowned with raspberries and a fleck of gold leaf; it’s a sumptuous choice for a special celebration.

The recipe was developed as part of our 90th birthday celebrations in 2023, along with this pressed flower cake.

Test Kitchen tip
This hot milk sponge is so soft and moist, with a fine velvety crumb, and keeps fresher for longer than a classic sponge recipe.

A large wide bowl to mix the cake batter and hot milk mixture makes it easier to combine without knocking out too much air.
