Walnut Honey Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
It wasn't as light and airy as I had hoped and i subbed the ginger for nutmeg (b/c I realized I didn't have any after I started). I felt like the honey overpowered the other flavors (I used a natural wildflower honey), maybe it was the type of honey I used not sure but it was a too much work to try again.
I wanted to love this cake so much, however, it was anything but "light and fluffy". I followed the recipe exactly as written, but it turned out dry and heavy. I was careful to not over/under bake it. The cake is a vast mix of flavors, though the ginger seemed to overpower the more subtle flavors. It did fill the kitchen with a wonderful aroma as it baked, but given the cost and effort, the end result was not worth it. Perhaps less ginger and adding a cup of applesauce would make this more palatable, but I doubt that I'll make this again. I wish it had been better, Lily. It did sound delicious.
