…tasting much sweeter than wine.”
Honey is an amazing food.
Honey has had a long story in human history. It has used in foods and beverages since early times – including ancient man and has had a role in religion and symbolism.
It also tastes good. Imagine being able to make something so wonderful just by gathering pollen from millions of flowers.
I have always loved honey. Especially on Ice Cream and cakes. So when the Bundt Bakers‘ theme this month was HONEY it was perfect. And I am quite fortunate in that my Brother-n-Law is a beekeeper so there is always a large jar of honey in the house.
This recipe comes from a Caterer in New York. I chose it because it had more honey in it than any recipe I had found – 2 cups. I knew you would really be able to taste the sweetness of the honey in this one.
1 cup butter, very soft
1 cup milk
2 cups honey
2.5 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp. baking powder
3 pinches salt
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Completely Butter your pan – you know how bundt pans are!!
In a large bowl sift your flours, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer blend your honey and butter very well. Add your eggs one at a time blending well after each addition. Add milk and mix well, scraping down the sides of your bowl along the way.
Slowly add in the flour mixture until batter all is well incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the bundt pan.
Bake for 40 – 50 minutes depending on your oven (mine took 45) Be careful not to overbake!!
When cool, if you like, dust with powdered sugar.
I had plenty of batter for a regular bundt pan and a mini.
- Drizzled with honey!
As if that wasn’t enough, and I just couldn’t control myself, I made Honey Sweetened Ice cream to go on top. Then drizzled the whole luscious thing with HONEY!
A little over the op, you say? NAW!! Just right.
