Honeycake

The honey you choose will influence the flavor of the cake. Summer honeys are often lighter and more delicate than the richer late summer, early fall darker honeys. All of them are beautiful. Delicately sweet, this honeycake is moist and decadent without being too cloying. This is the basic recipe that I use during the spring and summer and I serve it with fresh whipped cream and berries. During the colder months warm it up a bit by adding sweet, warming spices like cinnamon and nutmeg - about a teaspoon each. Instead of the fresh berries, dice and apple and/or pear and heat them in a skillet with a little butter, cinnamon and a kiss of honey to serve over the hot cake.
