Eggless Honey Cake | Easy Cake Recipes

My sweet darling niece is celebrating her birthday today.Even though we couldn't be together on her special day,I couldn't stop myself from baking a special cake for her.She is indeed special for all of us,my parents' first grandchild and the closest I ever got to having a child was when she was born.I even got to name her,Krishnaa :) When Arjun was born,she wouldn't leave his side for a second.The moment he heard her voice,the joy in his eyes brought so much happiness to all of us :)


I wanted to bake a simple but yet special cake.Even though I haven't tasted Honey Cake from a bakery,I have heard so much about it that I decided Honey Cake it is!I have made it once before during a dinner party and even though the cake was a hit,it got over and I couldn't relish eating it as I would have liked :) A simple butter cake,drenched in a sugar syrup and topped with some jam and coconut flakes,if that doesn't sound delicious to you I don't know what will :)


There are tons of recipes for Honey Cake online but I chose the most reliable one from Gayathri.I halved the recipe though since there are only three of us and it made a small cake,just perfect!The cake is moist,spongy and the topping is what makes it taste so good.Sweet jam and coconut..just so so good!Do try it and you will love it :)
