Greek Honey Cakes
May 20, 2012 in Uncategorized
I had these Greek Honey Cakes in my mind the minute I woke up yesterday morning. For a change we had no sport, no birthday parties and no shopping to do….just a chilaxing Saturday with my own little family. I also like to do a few recipes on Saturday mornings just to get ahead with my posts for the week. Hubby and the children normally watches a movie together and I get to spend a quiet morning in my kitchen……
My husband only laughs when I tell him this, but I swear, I “saw” these Greek Honey Cakes. In my mind they were this deep golden brown color with a honeycomb texture, absolutely drenched in butter and honey… I searched a bit for a recipe, but to no avail……it was then that I remembered my mom’s vanilla cake recipe with the light honeycomb texture. I decided to go with that recipe and just added the “Greek” elements which was the lemon and honey….
The end result was everything I had hoped it would be. While busy styling and shooting(still in my pajamas), the doorbell rang and friends came over for a cup of coffee. Imagine how special they felt when they were treated to these delightful Greek Honey Cakes. (The truth is that they had to help me finish the shoot before we could devour these cakes)
For more delectable sweet things………..
