Let them eat (honey) cake
In fact, whilst reading the December issue of BeeCraft a couple of weeks ago I spotted a news piece with the above photo of an amazing honeycomb cake. A lady beekeeper had won numerous honey cake contests with a 'tear and share' cake pan she'd bought from Lakeland. As I'm rather partial to baking, I just knew that the cake tin had to be mine. This was further confirmed when I went onto Lakeland's website and found it was on sale. Yay!
Having arrived last week, yesterday I decided to try out the recipe that the pan comes with – a lemon cake with honey glaze. It was a huge success (even if I may say so) and not one of the hexagons are left. I've a feeling that honeycomb cake may become my signature dish and I'm keen to try new flavours.
When I shared the photo above on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram I had loads of people ask where they can get the pan. Unfortunately, Lakeland is no longer stocking it. The pan is made by an American company called Nordic Ware and I think you may be able to buy it on Amazon.
Happy baking and if you have a recipe for a honey cake please let me know!
