A different version of honey cake - I don't think I have ever seen one with rye flour in it. Adapted from an very old holiday issue of Good Housekeeping. A good snack cake to have with your tea.

this cake is very different. the day i made it i tasted it and thought it was just okay. but somehow the next day it was wonderful- it had a totally different flavor, it was sweet and dense. definitely make this a day in advance, and you will be rewarded with a wonderful snack cake.
