Melt and Mix Honey Cake
« on: September 05, 2013, 07:54:13 am »
This is the perfect cake for any occasion and it takes longer to collect the ingredients than it does to make the batter! I converted it from an old Donna Hay recipe and the heroes of this cake are the honey and the sour cream; the honey gives it such a deliciously sweet taste and the sour cream makes it light and fluffy as a cloud.

Ingredients

165g raw sugar
 
155g butter
 
3 eggs
 
125g  honey
 
180g sour cream
 
260g self-raising  flour

How to

1.Preheat oven to 180C / 160C fan forced.
2.Place sugar  in the TM bowl and mill for 3 seconds on speed 10. Set aside.
 3.Place butter into TM bowl and melt for 3 minutes at 60C on speed 1. Check that the butter is completely melted, if not, melt for a further 30 seconds.
 4.Add the eggs, honey and sour cream and mix on speed 5 for 5 seconds.
 5.Add the flour and sugar and mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and if necessary, mix for another 5 10 seconds on speed 5,  until the batter is nice and smooth.
 6.Pour mixture into a bundt tin and bake for 30 minutes.
 7.Serve as is with a nice cup of tea, or drizzle with  warm honey and serve with some thick cream for a decadent dessert.
 
TIP!
For a beautiful bundt make sure the bundt tin is really well-greased and lightly flour the tin before pouring the mixture in.

Denzelmum - Loooooove this cake. Made this to take to the crowd and gone in no time. Guess what - I'm baking this for the second time this evening (DS birthday party tomorrow). Thank you so much TAT!

jo nz - I've just made this in muffin tins - YUM! Thanks.

snappy - Delicious cake!  Reminds me a lot of the famous Golden Syrup cake from this forum. I used spelt flour, rapadura and coconut butter (I'm trying to reduce the white flour/sugar in lunch boxes) and it was really tasty - boys loved it!

mab19 - I made this yesterday to take out to the family and everyone loved it.   Was told to put it in the make again folder.

Kimmyh - Made this today with lots of help from DS4. Can't believe how quick and easy this is. Used a standard ring tin with no problems. Great cake and really nice served warmed with cream. Thanks tat for a great make again and again cake.

Thermesa - made 12 regular cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes and plenty left to lick from the bowl. The batter is Delish!

cookie1 - You are so right about the batter Kimmy, it is delicious. The cake tastes lovely too, but guess who didn't grease the bundt tin enough?

CC - The recipe cooked perfectly in my honeycomb cake tin. I brushed all the nooks and crannies with cake release. Left it to cool in the tin for five minutes before turning it out onto a cake rack. Uni has a recipe here.

It looks lovely and who could resist when it is as fluffy as a cloud.  ;)

It's pretty hard to resist, I have to say! It's so easy and so delicious, I have made about 3 so far this week, all in the name of recipe testing!  ;D Practice makes perfect!

Kimmyh, this one is  a corker. I love melt and mix cakes because I am never organised enough to have soft butter on hand! Good old, Donna!  ;D

Well, I don't have anything to compare, but seems pretty good  ;D
I may just have to make as a cake and compare the results.  Quite a sacrifice...  ;)

DD is not a cake/muffin lover, but is mad about honey, so tomorrow's lunchbox will be a bit of a test. Will let you know what Miss Fussypants has to say about it.

I took one to a family party too, and it was loved by all. I think it has reappeared in some lunchboxes today, too!
