Honey Almond Meal Cake

To end the last in the series of baked goodies I had to share this beautiful cake recipe that my son and husband both love to have no matter which time of the day I cook it

I usually make it once in 3 weeks, which coincides with the time when my bottle of honey is reduced down to last 1/2 cup. I place an order for a new bottle and promptly wipe down the older one in my cake batter. It has become a ritual at my place to do this. While I make variations to the core recipe but the bare naked one is what I share with you today. You can add fruit juices, nuts and fresh fruits of your choice.

2 cups Self rising flour 
1 cup demerera sugar 
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup almond meal
1 cup butter/ oil
1 tbsp fresh curd 
1 tspn vanilla essence

1) Cream he oil, honey, curd and sugar until it is mixed well. 
2) add the vanilla essence and stir again
3) Now add 2 tbsp of flour at a time and make a smooth batter
4) Pour this batter into a greased or lined 8 inch cake tin.
5) Bake this batter in a preheated oven at 180c for 35 min or until the cake comes out clean with pricked with a knife or tooth pick

Honey in a cake sounds very flavorful. I like your ritual of using up the honey in the cake. :)

My honey becomes crystallized sitting in on the shelf and
I need to reheat it to use it. :) The cake sounds wonderful and love that texture of the cake.

Delicious and healthy guilt free honey cake. The only time my honey bottle sees daylight is when we have a cold and you use one bottle every month.
