In honor of my Daddy, I made this Apple Honey Cake for dessert tonight. He's a beekeeper and loves recipes that use his fresh wildflower honey. Fall is around the corner so apples were a perfect addition.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 medium apples (peeled, cored, and grated)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease a bundt pan. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine, set aside.
In a stand mixer (or in a bowl with a hand mixer), beat the sugar, oil, honey, and vanilla extract until thickened. Beat in the eggs one at a time until combined.
Beat in the flour mixture then fold in the apples.
Pour batter into the greased bundt pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes before turning it out on a plate.
Drizzle with warm honey and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
