I used locally grown honey, which is probably darker than what you buy in the grocery store. Loved the spices! This was more like a bread than a cake. Not sweet, and not as spicy as gingerbread. I'll enjoy this for breakfast this week. Thanks!

I liked this not-too-sweet cake a lot - like a gingerbread or Lebkuchen. I used Manuka Honey from Hokitika, NZ. Followed everything else exactly as written - a first for me!! Thanks, Mikekey!

Yum! DH loved this cake. I used wildflower honey which is a darker honey than clover, and it resulted in a honey version of gingerbread. Subbed yogurt in place of sour cream.
