“Not the typical honey cake you are used to. This is a cake that is more honey than cake, by which I mean its texture is sticky and gooey rather than being solid. I really intended something quite different, and at first thought this cake was almost a disaster - but after I put it in the refrigerator it actually turned out pretty nicely. If you vary the amount of honey, you can probably come up with something resembling the more solid cake I originally intended. (But if you use too little honey you will wind up with a typical mediocre honey cake- so be careful!)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces honey
  • 8 ounces yellow cake mix, in a box


  1. Pour the mix in a cake pan (preferably disposable given the nature of the recipe).
  2. Pour the honey in the cake pan.
  3. Beat vigorously for at least 5 minutes or so, so the honey will mix in with the cake mix. You will not need water or eggs or any other ingredients.
  4. Bake for 45 minute at 350. Do not expect the mix to be solid.
  5. Put mix in refrigerator for at least one and a half hours so it will solidify somewhat.
  6. Thaw for at least 30 minutes.
