  • refreshing honey lemon cake summer dessert recipe

    There are three kinds of people – those who love cake, those who love icing and those who will eat anything sweet are equal opportunity dessert eaters who will consume it all with no regrets. Can you guess which I am? If I have a pile of icing on my cupcake, I will devour it in a heartbeat, but that’s also how I had to become a calorie counter.

    Now when I go for something sweet I take a couple hints from my Grandma – everything in moderation and a little drizzle of glaze never hurt anyone. This honey lemon cake is the perfect duo – a hint of something sweet, but not too much!

    One of my Grandma’s favorite desserts to make {aside from pie, she always had 10 in the freezer “just in case”} was angel food cake. I always enjoyed it – simple, sweet, and topped with a beautiful glaze. Angel food cake is beautiful, right out of the bundt pan and it takes absolutely no effort to drizzle it with glaze.

    This honey lemon cake is just as simple and beautiful, without any additional effort. I used a beehive cakelet pan, but any muffin tin will do, too!
