Honey cake baking with kids in the morning…
Whenever I bake with kids, I always make up a recipe sheet they can take home with them. In this case, however, I suspect parents might be aghast at what exactly is in this cake. Most people prefer not to know. Me, I love it!!!
Here’s a link to last year’s honey cakes. Yes, happy birthday, this brand-new blog is turning a YEAR OLD next week. :-o
