Honey cake that I remember eating for only very few times from local Indian bakery – Saravana bakery in Salem. After that once in Chennai after marriage. I am a big fan of local bakery items. The smell as we enter the bakery just takes me to another world. After coming here to Singapore, I see all the cake shops selling perfectly iced cakes, looking smooth, dream soft sponge cakes. Still my heart goes for the local bakery cakes. I like that flavour, I am not sure which essence they use and the though the icing here is light and fluffy, I like the grainy, sweet and flavoured icing that they use in the bakeries locally. I always say this to Vj that I crave for Indian local bakery cakes and he would be laughing at me why so. Now too, my parents buy and keep cake for me when I visit my home and I gobble all of it in one or two days that I stay there. I will write about the buns, puffs later in another post.
So I was thinking to try this honey cake for few years now and finally saw a post in this blog and loved it. I realised honey cake is about the syrup, jam and coconut on the top. I used the eggless orange cake recipe for this cake. You can bake your favorite basic vanilla cake and make this honey cake too. I chose orange cake as my kid like orange flavoured cake. When I finished making this cake and tasted it, I was so happy that I could finally eat my favorite cake, that too homemade and eggless version.

One of my most favorite cake – honey syrup drenched, jam and coconut flavored honey cake.
