I don't remember where I got this from, but have been making it for years. It's easy and quick, and can bake while you are having supper. The recipe for the cake portion is already listed on Zaar Hot Milk Sponge Cake, however this one has the topping. It is also very delicious plain.

- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
