A rainy day in Melbourne = a perfect day to make a Honey Spice Cake, using my new electric hand mixer (the old one gave-up after 25+ years of solid service). The new Breville Wizz Mix has a lot more power than the trusty old Kambrook – but it is a bit heavier to hold.
Honey Spice Cake
Sift together the following in a medium bowl
- 1 1/2 cups plain white flour
- 1 tsp baking powder & 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon & 3/4 tsp allspice
In a larger bowl beat together until pale yellow
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup castor sugar
- 6 tsp oil
- 1/2 cup of honey
Then stir in
- 1/4 cup apple sauce
and slowly beat in the sifted flour mixture
Put into a loaf tin and top with approx
- 1/4 cup flaked almonds
and bake at 180 for 45-50 minutes.
Took the cake to my neighbours (who mow my lawn & do my weeding!) Cake had a lovely subtle taste, but was a bit dry – I might have left in the oven a bit too long. So perhaps test at 40 min.
