"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!
made for ZWT7 one of Mike's I mean Count Dracula and his Hot Bites"
"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."
"I made this for the GF Pacific Challenge on ZWT7. I removed the regular sugar and flour, and added 1/2 cup coconut flour and upped the eggs to a half dozen. I added a little oil and lessened the honey a touch, because I don't like a lot of sweet. I sprinkled almonds on half and shredded coconut on half. I baked in cupcakes and small loaves because coconut flour cakes stay very moist so you do not want anything large. It was fantabulous."
"I made ours gluten free like Abi Fae. I did exactly what she did. Cut out the sugar and regular flour and used coconut flour and 6 eggs. I also cut down the honey a little. It was almost barely sweet which was OK. We didn't like it a lot but I do think as a regular flour cake it would be 5 stars that is why I am giving them. For gluten free with coconut flour I give it 4 stars but I don't like the taste of coconut flour much. It was hard to discern the spices in the subtle coconut flavour after cooling. I did not add nutmeg because of it's intoxicant properties but I did add a bit more allspice. I used creamed honey and half sour cream, half Balkan (thick) yogurt, slivered almonds and the rest of the ingredients. Not one I would make again for our diet.
