The New Age of Sweets and Treats

I've had a sweet tooth since I was a little girl. I remember spending weekends smelling my mother's golden cakes baking in the oven. She would precisely decorate her golden cakes with homemade light and fluffy icing. My mother use to dress her golden cakes with custom icing that complement the sweetness of her cake batter and deep to explore in taste.

I explored food in my own way. I love to combine sweet and spice notes together. Has this ever hurt anyone? Exploring my own taste buds, I discovered there's nothing wrong in recreating a classic dessert cake, like my Honey Butter Cake.

Butter Cake is baked with basic ingredients like butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and your choice of baking soda or baking powder.

My taste buds became curious with this American classic recipe. Butter cake, known to be rich and velvet to the taste. Similar to buttery pound cake, I recreated the classic dessert cake to a Honey Butter Cake with Stella Bistro Foods's Autumn Flair Sultry Spice.

My Honey Butter Cake made their first appearance at a friend's dinner party. Prepared at the moment's notice, I baked my honey butter cake with basic ingredients on hand: butter sugar, a few eggs, flour and baking soda.

I baked the Honey Butter Cake twice—it's won noses of neighbors! Use the remaining cake crumbles from poking holes in the cake to make your own cake pops! Mix in your choice of confetti sprinkles, Autumn Flair sultry spice and fruit, and insert the lollipop stick. Bam! An easy cake pop! Coat in colored sugars or icing for special dressing.

The Honey Butter Cake isn't overly sweet and has plenty of flavor. As a coffee and tea lover, this Honey Butter Cake is perfect for dessert or a midnight snack. Try baking in advance and slice when cool. Wrap well in parchment or wax paper to freeze!

Use all-purpose flour of your choice—gluten-free or all purpose. Note: Baking results may vary based on your choice of flour. I used all-purpose flour, but use and adjust measurements of your choice.

Bake your Honey Butter Cake with this aspiring recipe!
