Delicious honey cake

honey cake

This honey cake is divine.  I am now writing and feeling like going again in the kitchen to take another slice. Consider that I am not a honey lover. I eat it but I don’t look for honey in general.

The taste of honey isn’t evident in this cake. It makes the trait-d’union between all tasty ingredients, I believe. What I can say for sure is that it is one of the best cakes I’ve eaten lately.

I’ve found this honey cake recipe in one of my favorite blogs: Smittenkitchen. This recipe is for three 3.3×7.8 in / 10×20 cm plumcake mold and I have changed only a few things.

  1. Line the molds with parchment paper.
  2. Turn on the oven 350°F / 175°C.
  3. Put all ingredients into the bowl of your standing mixer and using the K hook mix it all until well combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pans and bake for about 50 minutes or until inserting a toothpick into the cake, it comes out clean.
  5. Let the cake rest for some minutes into the pan before taking it out of it to cool on a rack.
  6. Buon appetito!
