Honey Cake W/Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Honey Cake W/Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting created by Sarah C.

Every Friday night I bake a cake. And this time around, I asked my 3 year old what kind of cake I should make. He had a biscuit w/honey at lunch, so his reply to me was "Honey Cake". I checked the Zaar, and found a promising recipe for Honey Cake and decided to change a few things here and there.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2- 9" cake pans.
  • In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients, excluding sugar.
  • Using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, whisk together all wet ingredients and sugar and medium speed. Add eggs one at a time until well blended.
  • Turn mixer to low, and add dry ingredients in batches until well incorporated You may need to scrape down the bowl a few times. Make sure to scrape up the bottom of the bowl too! (I use a 6 qt, so you may not need to do that!).
  • Turn on medium for about 30 seconds.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove pans from oven and set pans upside down on a cooling rack. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove pans.
  • Fully cool before frosting.
  • For the frosting:

  • Using room temperature cream cheese and butter, use paddle attachment on mixer and cream items together. Add Cinnamon and Vanilla.
  • Add confectioners sugar slowly in batches with mixer on low speed.
  • Add milk one tablespoon at a time until you've reached the desired consistency.

    This cake was good but not great. I did a LOT of winging so there's a pretty good chance that it's my fault and not the recipe!! I only had 2 cups of white flour so I subbed wheat for the rest; didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I winged that (and probably didn't use enough); eyeballed the amount of honey I put in because it was difficult to scoop from the container; made this around 9 p.m. after a full night of cooking so I wasn't super exact or concerned with anything! Despite all of my winging, though, it did turn out to be a pretty good cake. It reminded me and hubby more of a coffee cake consistency-wise than a dessert type of cake so he has been enjoying it every morning at work : ) Next time I make this I will be a bit more precise with the recipe to see if it turns out differently. I'm also planning on at least doubling (and maybe tripling) the frosting recipe. I baked mine in 2 layer pans and would've had enough for the top and side icing but not enough for a filling between the two layers.
