“This is a simple little pound cake with lots of flavour from the butter,honey and vanilla. Use a darker honey to get the most flavour, do not use buckwheat, it is too bitter; I use my favourite - wildflower honey. This cake is nice served with Honeyed Mixed Berries. Honeyed Mixed Berries Enjoy! Source: LCBO Food & Drink magazine”
