Honey Cake Recipe

Last week, I shared a Romany (Gypsy) recipe that my hero, Luca, may have enjoyed in Regency England, a roasted hedgehog.

Today I’m sharing a Honey Cake Recipe. In my Regency Historical Romance, Seeking Patience, Lady Patience Blakwell, the heroine, serves “honey cakes and tea for a light midday meal.”

This is a simple recipe, and most ingredients you may already have on hand:

Ingredients:
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 cup honey
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 4 eggs
• 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
• 1 cup orange juice
• 2 1/2 cups flour
• 3 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• pinch of salt
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
3. Mix sugar, honey, oil, eggs and orange zest. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the orange juice. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes. Cool and serve.

Enjoy and serve with a cuppa hot tea!

  1. This sounds good. Almost as good as the book. Or maybe good to eat with a good book!
