Forest Flower Honey Cake

Cakes are a delight, no matter the occasion. It is something no one will say no to. But if the cake is light, spongey, moist and glazed, you should thank God you had a piece of that fluffy, sweet, melt-in-your-mouth heaven. This is the cake you bake for your friends and expect it to disappear in a moment (if you’re in the mood for sharing), or else eating the whole cake by yourself is fine too. No judgement, truly! Its exquisite taste comes from Eatopia’s forest flower honey which makes this cake an experience to behold.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (225g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (115g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (115g) Eatopia litchi honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 2cups (245g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (110mL) sour cream

Glaze

Ingredients

Intructions

  • 1Preheat the oven to 160C. Butter a 9-inch cake tin, line the bottom with parchment paper, butter that, and flour, tipping out any excess.
  • 2Cream the butter, sugar, and Eatopia litchi honey together until light and fluffy.
  • 3Beat the eggs lightly together and slowly incorporate into the butter base.
  • 4Mix the dry ingredients together (all remaining ingredients but the sour cream) and stir well.
  • 5Fold 1/3 of the flour mixture gently into the butter base, then about 1/3 of the sour cream. Repeat twice more until all ingredients are just incorporated.
  • 6Turn the batter into your prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • 7Note that honey browns very quickly in the oven, so if you notice this happening, you can tent your cake with foil for the duration. To make a foil tent, simply roll the foil to create a cone so the foil won’t come into contact with the cake top.
  • 8When you cake is done, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for about ten minutes, then invert onto a rack to cool.
  • 9When cool to touch, transfer to a plate and make the icing:
  • 10Whisk the lemon juice and Eatopia litchi honey together, then whisk in the powdered sugar (ideally you’d sift the powdered sugar in to remove any lumps).
  • 11Drizzle over your cake, allowing the icing to trickle down the sides.
  • 12Allow frosting to set, and serve.
