Honey butter cake

Finding a new cake flavour can be a bit of a challenge. I bake a lot so have loads of favourites. My standard cake if someone is coming over at short notice is a butter cake, but obviously that gets a bit boring after a while. Adding honey to the mix seemed like a good solution.


The smell in the kitchen while it was cooking was worth the effort on its own.

Honey butter cake

3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup honey
1 tspn vanilla bean paste
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1/3 cup milk

Method

Preheat the oven to 170 Celsius. Grease and flour a 20 cm cake pan. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the honey and mix well. Add the vanilla and eggs, and beat until smooth. Add half of the flour and mix well. Add the milk, then the remaining flour. Place in the pan and bake 15 minutes, before reducing the temperature to 160. Continue cooking until golden brown and the sides have pulled away from the pan. If the cake browns too much before the sides have puled away, reduce the temperature further and continue baking.

Serve with whipped cream or topped with honey frosting.
