Dusting some powdered sugar is another easy way to add little more drama to the cake presentation. You can lightly glaze it with your favorite glaze. I love fresh lemon glaze for refreshing brightening taste.

As with any cake recipe, liberally lathered coat of icing is always awesome.

You can use this cake as a base for making delicious trifle and parfaits. You can use chocolate milk instead of regular milk to make Chocolate Hot Milk Cake. Adding lemon zest , pineapple chunks or dry fruits like apricots can add extra fresh element to the cake mix.

For exotic flavors, use 1/4 teaspoon saffron or 1/4 teaspoon crushed cardamom , or 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder  or 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder in the batter.
