Cooking A-Z: H is for Honey Cake


Finding a good recipe for H was a little bit of a challenge. I’m not a huge fish fan so halibut was out of the running and I thought about making a hazelnut spread but I just a fruit dip so I wanted to spread my wings I little. I got pretty excited about making hush puppies but my husband busted my happy bubble when he pointed out we don’t have a fryer šŸ˜¦ “Thank you, I realize that…I was going to fry them in the pan as another blogger recommended”, I pointed out to this amateur! “Eww! Ohhh, no! You can’t do that!”, the amateur screamed!….happy bubble popped and off to to reclaim my happiness with a new fryer!

So until I can stuff my face with delicious hush puppies I will delight you with Honey Cake. I found this recipe on Many reviewers replaced the orange juice with coffee and said it was amazing. I also used lemon juice instead of orange zest and my cooking time was altered. (Please visit for original recipe, my version is below.)Ā  I decided to try the coffee out since I loved the last time I put coffee in one of my cakes. It turned out very moist with tons of flavor, however I think the orange juice would compliment the the honey great and I will try that next time.
