Honey Cake

Prep Time:

20 mins.

Cook Time:

30 mins.


1 (9-inch) bundt pan

This rustic, easy-to-make cake is a great starter cake for beginning bakers and a lovely everyday dessert to have on hand. It’s not overly sweet, making it a nice treat for breakfast, too. Try a slice lightly toasted with butter.


  • 2 1/4 cup sifted Swans Down® Cake Flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup honey
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for garnish
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Grease a 9-inch bundt pan.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Cream butter, honey, and zest together in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix until combined.
  4. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with berries, if desired.
