Honey Cake , 3 ways!

Traditional Honey Cake

One recipe.

Add an ingredient or two, work the magic with a different technic and you get 3 AWESOME different cakes.

Each cake has its own texture look and taste. But, they are all delicious, nondairy and satisfy any sweet tooth while not being too sweet (for the aunt/uncle that “don’t like” sweet).
