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
