Sour Milk Spice Cake

READY IN: 53mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Another half container of milk gone bad? Here's a delicious option for the thrifty minded. The cake is warm comforting and nicely spiced. If you don't have sour milk, you can make some by placing a tablespoon of vinegar in a one cup measure and filling the rest with milk; let stand 10 minutes and you are ready to go.

No rating, just a comment that pasteurized milk does not "sour" - it just spoils and should not be used once it turns. When sour milk is called for, use buttermilk or add vinegar to good milk!
