Honey Cake Recipe

I recently realized that Sam is sensitive to brown sugar, and refined sugar in general if she gets too much. So I created a honey cake recipe that we all can enjoy. This cake is moist and dense, and the flavored honey (I used blackberry honey) drizzled over it really makes it a great dessert.

Honey Cake Recipe

2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup clover honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

Flavored honey (to drizzle over top of cake)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix together thoroughly, but don't over mix. Spray an 8x8 square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan and bake it for 30 minutes. When the time is up, insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake to make sure it's done.

Before serving, drizzle flavored honey over the piece of cake. Blackberry honey is especially good.


  1. Honey is NOT vegan.... but this dish sounds lovely otherwise

  2. Thanks, Ananda. I forgot about that. I updated the post to remove "Vegan." Thanks again.
