In Momma Beverly's house sweet was in and savory was out!

Momma Beverly's Hot Milk Cake

Why it's on our list

While guest, Brianna Abrahms is a successful "Pie-preneur" owning multiple Winston's Pies pie shops throughout Southern California, it was Momma Beverly's Hot Milk Cake that sisters Brianna and Brittni remember as one of their top sweet treats from childhood. There was so much sweetness in this household that not only inspired Brianna to open a pie shop but she still relies on Beverly and Brittni as collaborators, critics and confidants when it comes to new recipes. Our personal opinion is that Winston's Pies needs a Hot Milk Cake inspired pie but until then we encourage you to try this recipe and let us know your thoughts.

The fun part of this cake is you can use any frosting that you like! Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or whatever you're in the mood for. Because we are chocolate lovers, we have chosen to include a typical chocolate frosting but feel free to change it up!
