Almond Honey Cake
This Almond Honey Cake recipe makes a great blank canvas for adding additional layers of flavours. Try replacing honey with maple syrup and adding cinnamon and apple chunks as a winter comfort food. Or adding rose petals, orange zest and ground cardamom for a Middle Eastern spin. Or even a classic lemon zest and raspberries gently pressed on top of the batter for a summer twist. Enjoy it as it is or add those extra flavours in at step five to really make it your own. Most of all, have fun experimenting!
