Rustic Honey Cake.
I’ve always wanted to try making a Honey Cake. My sister has a Fiji Honey Cake on our blog. Below I made up my own version of Honey Cake because I wanted to use different ingredients. The recipe below calls for yogurt but you can also substitute it with sour cream or buttermilk. It is a rustic cake without frosting so if you want some sweetness on top I recommend dusting the top with powdered sugar.
The cake turned out moist and the powdered sugar on top gives it just enough sweetness to make this rustic style cake a keeper in my book.
