It has been too long since I’ve posted anything decadently sweet and naughty. Yes, this recipe of Honey and Citrus Syrup cake IS naughty, let me tell you why.
The thing about a moist syrup cake, like this one, is that it lasts way longer than any other cake. It is actually at its best, when it has been standing in the fridge for about three days. Can you see why this is such an evil thing!
At least now you can have a piece of cake everyday, for the next six days. The cake consists of a fluffy vanilla one-bowl mix cake, sweetened with honey, then drizzled with a honey and citrus syrup.
The sponge cake just takes all of that sugary syrupy goodness and with the tang of citrus and the sweetness of the honey, it sure is the perfect treat for the family.
You can of course add more zest if you please and you can remove some of the clementine segments off of the cake before serving. I also used this recipe for my Vanilla and White Chocolate Bundt cake – it simply is the best and most versatile vanilla cake recipe out there. Enjoy!
