Recipes


Honey recipes will be added to this page as they are gathered and tried in my own kitchen.

This first recipe I’ve enjoyed making several times.

 Honey-Apple Cake

If you like Honey and you like apples, you’ll love this cake! It is topped with a honey sauce that can cover the cake as well as be served with the cake and ice cream! Yummy!!!

Honey Sauce:

1 cup brown sugar (make sure firmly packed)

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup of honey — The average worker honeybee makes about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. 1/4 cup holds 12 teaspoons, so it takes 144 honey bees to make 1/4 cup of honey. Precious stuff!

1/4 cup of milk

Honey-Apple Cake:

1 cup chopped pecans – divided

2 cups sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup honey

3 large eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups chopped Golden Delicious apples (I’ve used Rome and Granny Smith – All good)

Honey Sauce

Vanilla Ice Cream

 Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Prepare a 12-cup Bundt pan by greasing and flouring. Make sure you dust it lightly. Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with 1/4 cup of pecans. Set aside.
  • Beat together the sugar, oil, and honey at medium speed until well blended. A hand mixer works well, but so does a stand mixer. Add the eggs one at a time, beating just until blended.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Gradually add this mixture to the sugar mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.
  • Stir in the vanilla, remaining 3/4 cup of pecans, and apples.
  • Spoon batter over pecans in the pan being careful not to cause the pecans in the pan to clump.
  • Bake at 350° F for 55 to 60 minutes.
  • Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
  • Remove cake from pan and place on a wire rake over wax paper.
  • Punch holes in cake with a very long toothpick or cake punch. Pour 1/2 cup of the Honey Sauce (see below for how to make)over the warm cake.
  • Cool cake prior to serving. OR, heat remaining Honey Sauce and serve with cake and ice cream if you like.

 Honey Sauce Directions:

  • Bring all the ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly; boil, stirring constantly for two (2) minutes. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
