“Every Friday night I bake a cake. And this time around, I asked my 3 year old what kind of cake I should make. He had a biscuit w/honey at lunch, so his reply to me was "Honey Cake". I checked the Zaar, and found a promising recipe for Honey Cake and decided to change a few things here and there.”
1 2 layer 9 inch cake

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2- 9" cake pans.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients, excluding sugar.
  3. Using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, whisk together all wet ingredients and sugar and medium speed. Add eggs one at a time until well blended.
  4. Turn mixer to low, and add dry ingredients in batches until well incorporated You may need to scrape down the bowl a few times. Make sure to scrape up the bottom of the bowl too! (I use a 6 qt, so you may not need to do that!).

  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove pans from oven and set pans upside down on a cooling rack. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove pans.
