German honey cake.
Honigkuchen (honey cake) is a traditional cake in Germany. We made it with honey from Virginia’s dad’s bees.
150g soft butter
375g cake flour
12g baking powder
6g ground ginger
3g ground cinnamon
2g ground cloves
Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time. In the meantime, sift together flour, baking powder, and spices. Add milk and honey into a large bowl and briefly microwave (about 30 seconds on medium) to soften the honey, then whisk together. Alternately add dry ingredients and honey/milk mixture to the batter. Fill batter into a Bundt pan.
Bake in preheated oven at 360ºF for 30 minutes, reduce temperature to 350ºF and bake for another 25-30 minutes.
Let cool and glace with sugar glace if desired. Serve with whipped cream.
