Hot milk sponge cake

I baked this tea cake recently which I had saved the recipe from  a baking forum. At times I randomly save the inviting recipes and then get hesitated to give it a try in case it doesn’t work  for me. But this recipe worked perfect. Everyone at my place liked it. I had shared the recipe with my friend Sandhya Kamath too. She too successfully baked  and her family members also liked it. Do give it a try dear readers and please share me the pictures. I would be glad to  hear your feedback.
