White Sour Milk Cake


Milk goes bad, don't just throw it away, make this moist and delicious sour milk cake. Serve it with ice cream or any fruit sauce.















2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
beaten well
1 cup sour milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃). Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a large mixing bowl.

  2. In another bowl, cream shortening and sugar, add well-beaten eggs, sour milk, and vanilla; mix well.

  3. Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture, and stir until just incorporated and moistened.

  4. Bake in a greased 8-inch (20 cm) cake pan for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let cool in pan on wire completely. Turn cake out of the pan, cut into wedges and serve.

"Dissolve baking soda in mixture alternately with sifted dry ingredients." This instruction doesn't make sense and there is no mention of where/how to add the sour cream/milk.

Thanks for your comment, just edited the recipe, now it's very clear to read and understand.


Thanks so much for this recipe!!! I have a lot of sour milk from my grandma (because she never uses it so it goes bad) and I don't know what to do with it! I have a couple of ' Sour Milk Coffee Cake' recipes, but this is definitely something new! Thanks again!!!!!!!!!

Me, too. It is 15 minutes and still pretty much batter. Maybe the sour milk doesn't set like butter milk?


I used a 8 inch square pan and had to add another 10 minutes to baking time.
