Oh Lordy. The cake is loosely based on a pound cake, with honey substituted
for part of the sugar, and some ground almonds and almond extract added. To
the best of my memory (I was flying by the seat of my pants then, too):
1/2 lb. butter
3/4 C. sugar
3/4 C. honey
2 C. AP flour
1/4 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
1 t. almond extract
1/2 C. milk (? I don't remember!)
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, beating well between each.
Add honey and blend well. Sift dry ingredients together. Add them,
alternating with milk to which almond extract has been added. Pour batter
into a greased/floured pan. Bake at 325 until done.
1/2-3/4 C. marzipan
1/2-3/4 C. honey
1 or 2 t. rose water
Heat in heavy saucepan over low heat until marzipan is "melted" and all is
blended well. Allow to cool slightly. Drizzle over cooled cake.
I hope this works for you. I have baked so many cakes of this sort that I
really do do them sort of stream-of-consciousness.
I own the bee hive, and I adore it. It makes the cutest cake, and I love
drizzling a honey almond cake with honey marzipan glaze. Yum. (Yes, it is
a bit over the top. Did anyone who knows me expect less???)
