Honey cake is a traditional treat for December, the last month before the new year. It is said this brings good luck and sweetness to the new year ahead! Our special creamed honey (a unique melt-in-your-mouth texture) made this an amazingly moist cake that you've got to try.
We adapted this recipe from a talented baker you may have heard of, Smitten Kitchen. We baked with different spices and incorporated our honey, making this dessert extra delicious.
Whiskey Honey Spice Cake
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add oil, honey, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, tea, orange juice and whiskey. Stir gently until just combined.
Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes, but may need more time. Cool and serve.
