Remember those good old days in school when we used to search for budget-friendly cakes? Honey cakes were always there for our rescue. To be honest, honey cakes are loved by even those who do not have a sweet tooth.

I do not know if the reason why we love Indian Bakery style Honey cake is because of the spongy, soft cake or is it the Jam spread. I guess most probably jam is the reason.

  1. Hi
    Looking forward to trying this recipe. However, am not in favour of essence in my baking. Could you suggest an alternate and portion of the same too.

    I just love all the pics , they are tempting.

    Thank you

    1. You can always use other flavors what you have like vanilla or coconut. You can add 2-3 tbsp honey in sugar syrup!
