It is the rich eggy, sticky quality of this cake that makes it so very delicious and incredibly filling! When we were children we used to be given this for tea, because there was a firmly held idea that all the eggs and milk were nourishing and very good for us. I sometimes add crystallized chopped fruit, golden raisins, or nuts to the basic mixture.
This is another really dense, heavy cake, so do serve it in small slices.
