I've made this cake on several occasions and it was a hit each time. My only recommendation is to spare the honey dressing - if you use all that is recommended, you'll end up with honey soup with cake in it. I typically use about half of what is prepared.
This was a good cake and I enjoyed the simplicity, but probably won't resort to this again as a substitute for baklava. I used whole wheat flour and pecans and added a splash of vanilla extract to the eggs since I didn't have the orange zest. The cake was moist and had good flavor. Nice to make when you don't have much time. Thanks for sharing Jan.
excellent quick cake .. just used fresh honey and
and lemon juice for syrup.. dont like to boil honey, and cuts down sweetness by a cup off sugar
This recipe was easy! I increased the amount of cinnamon to 1 tsp. The flavors remind me of baklava. The syrup was a little too sweet for my liking. Next time, I might reduce the amount of honey and sugar in half. This one is a keeper!
I love this easy to make cake that I found here on this website. The first time I made it my husband said it tasted just like the cake him mother used to make! What better compliment? (His mother was an outstanding greek cook!)
this came out just as amazing as I thought it would! I added lemon zest instead of orange. I cut the syrup recipe by half and I used mostly honey and about a quarter of the white sugar. Added like 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice to the syrup and it is just amazing!!!!! I used a round pan and it looks just like the main picture :) this will be made OFTEN!!! I just ate 4 pieces!! ***** This is an update!! this third time making this I decided to use honey instead of the sugar in the cake itself since the name is Honey Cake, not granulated sugar cake... it was so moist from this that I didn't need to add the milk. For the syrup I used about a cup of honey with like 5 tablespoons (a splash) of orange juice and one tablespoon of sugar and it is so good!! the best one yet!
I brought this to a Greek themed dinner. It was abig hit and easy to make. I only had a 1/2 cup of honey so I halved the syrup. I think it would have been way too sweet with the whole recipe. Very tasty.
This was great! I served it for my book club and it was a huge hit. I omitted the nuts and it was still good. Tastes like baklava.
