Honey Cake

15 min prep, 30 min baking time, serves 6 people

In this Honey Cake, we use much of the same ingredients as we did with the Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake, but we switched the butter and sugar out for vegetable oil and honey respectively. This change makes the cake relatively healthier while also giving it a lovely honey flavor. The perfect dessert for an afternoon or morning get together with the family!


  • 3 eggs
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, vegetable oil, honey, sour cream, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing everything into a consistent batter.
  3. Transfer the batter to a baking pan of your preferred shape. Once the batter has become level, place the baking pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Poke the cake with a toothpick to make sure that is finished baking.
  4. Take the pan out of the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes. Once cool, decorate the honey cake as you desire.
  5. Serve.
