Tunisian Honey Cake

Love. Love. Love, this cookbook.  So many recipes in here I want to make.


1/2 cup sugar

2 large eggs

5 tablespoons honey

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

4 tablespoons butter melted

2 tablespoons pine nuts

1 tablespoon honey, diluted with 1 teaspoon water

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the honey.
  • In a separate bowl, stir the flour and baking soda with a fork to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the sugar and egg mixture, then add the melted butter.
  • Pour the batter in the prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven; let stand for 5 minutes then invert onto a serving plate. In a small sauté pan, dry roast the pine nuts until lightly golden, then add the diluted honey. Spread the mixture evenly over the warm cake. Cool completely before slicing.

The honey came from Etsy and was just as wonderful as the Fireweed one we tried the other day.
