honey_cakeThe honey cake is an underestimated cake. There are no frills, just really good cake. A dusting of powdered sugar is all it needs. Maybe a spoonful of whipped cream and berries if you are really feeling fancy. The trick here is to use really good honey. In most cases clover honey is typically used in baking because it’s flavor is mild, but here we want the honey flavor to stand out. I used a wildflower honey, which is sweet and floral, and gives the cake lots of flavor. An orange blossom honey would also work well. Honey cakes can also tend to be too dry so we ensured this one wouldn’t be by adding sour cream, which works to keep the cake tender and moist. Serve it with a cup of tea or coffee and you won’t be disappointed. The cake is superb when still slightly warm!
