Honey & Orange Cake

Honey & Orange Cake

I recently bought a new springform pan from the wonderful Fat Daddio’s springform collection, the smallest 6″ x  3″, around 15 x 8 in cm and I love everything about it! The size is perfect for cake for 4 people or even 8 when made into a layer cake.  As they promise this pro-series pan really heats faster and cools quicker. Since I started baking with this pan I have reduced baking time with 5-7 minutes, but I am continuing to write down baking time without the reduction so it will be more accurate for all kinds of pans.

I have many other new baking supplies that I will share some details of in my coming posts, but now to the cake… Honey, Orange, Cinnamon and strong coffee make this cake strong in flavour and I wish I could have bottled the smell of the batter, it would be perfect for a scented candle.

As January progresses I’m still without refined sugars, and this recipe is purely sweetened with natural honey.
