Honey Joys

"You can vary this recipe by: * Sprinkle 100's & 1000's or those silver and gold balls over them before going into the oven. * For extra honey flavoured ones use double the honey amount. * For a large amount- double the recipe straightaway. * Use muffin pattypans instead of little bitty cake pattypans. Kids love these things at birthday parties."

  1. I've loved these since I was a kid and just recently made them for the 1st time for my 4 year old DD...now she loves them too...a classic recipe!
  2. Super easy treat! Thank you!
  3. I used to make these with my mum, and now I make them with my boys (except they call them Crunchy Munchy Honey Cakes like the Wiggles song!). Thanks for posting, I'd lost my recipe and can never remember the quantities.
  4. Wonderful childhood recipe. It's funny how 'smell memories' stick with you all these years! We'll be making these with our own kids one day, I'm sure.
  5. So Easy Thanks


<p>I live on the east coast of Australia. I am a proud descendant of two Aboriginal tribes. <br /><br />I spent my early childhood in Western Queensland and the Northern Territory. My mother was employed as a cook on various cattle and sheep stations. Through my mother I learnt to love and enjoy cooking fresh food. <br /><br />Last September, 2003, I had the pleasure of meeting JenT, Jewelies, their respective DHs and Jewelies? gorgeous daughter who was a treat to meet. One day, I hope I can go to New Zealand to visit JenT?s homeland. <br /><br />I enjoy reading cookbooks for cover to cover. My goal is to cook all the recipes I have collected in my Zaar cookbook.</p>
