Cooking tips
In your sweets you can replace sugar with honey, just to decrease the amount in this proportion: 7oz of sugar is 5.6 oz of honey, so that a tablespoon is about 0.6 oz.

To make this donut honey use a 9.5 inch round cake pan with a hole in the middle.

honey in recipes


  • Turn on the oven at 356° F, do it before you start to make the cake, so that when you will need to bake, the oven will be already hot!
  • Butter and flour the pan.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl, together with starch, baking powder and vanilla, and set aside.
  • Into another bowl mix the eggs with the honey until frothy (use an electric whisk).
  • Add the milk to the mixture gradually, then, always mixing, add flour and oil.
  • When everything is well mixed, you can bake it for 40-45 minutes.
  • When you think it's ready, do the usual test with a toothpick to check that it is cooked inside (remember, the toothstick must remain dry!).
  • When your donut with honey is cold, you can sprinkle it with icing sugar.
