Walnut and Honey Cake

I don`t know how the weather is where you are right now, but here in Switzerland it`s raining.. A LOT. Right now i`m sitting in front of my computer, writing this recipe and enjoying a nice cup of tea. The only thing that always makes eveything so much better, is a warm and comforting piece of cake. This Walnut and Honey Cake is just perfect for days like this. And the best part is, it`s soooo easy to make! 


Enjoy it warm and drizzle even a teensy bit more Honey over your piece of cake, if you like it a bit sweeter.

  7. Fill the batter in the prepared cake pan and sprinkle a few walnuts on top.
  8.  Bake for about 50-60 minutes on the middle rack, or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  9. In the meantime heat 1 tablespoon Honey with 50 ml water in a smoll pot, and simmer until about half of the liquid is reduced.
  10. Remove cake from the oven and drizzle immediately with warm sirup. Let it cool for a few minutes, than remove from pan onto a wire rack.
  11. Let cool completely or enjoy it still warm.
