    Impera_Magna's Note:

    Found in an online search for "Honigkuchen Marlenka" and posted b/c it sounds like it would be very good and something very different to make for tea or dessert. Might have to leave the walnuts off since the kids don't care for them. Heck NO! They can pick 'em off! *lol*

      Where is the honey in this cake? Honig means honey.

      The cake is sooo delicious. I made it for my dad who is German. My husband thought it kind of tasted like Ginger cake. I left out the walnuts, for my husband and son don't like nuts. Very easy to make, it takes time to make it, but well worth it.
