how to make eggless bakery style honey cakehoney cake recipe | how to make eggless bakery style honey cake with step by step photo and video recipe. there are several variations of this popular honey flavoured cake recipe which not only varies from india, but also overseas. in this recipe, i have tried to showcase the south indian variation especially sold on local bakery shops as slices. i have followed my previous tutti frutti cake base with honey, strawberry jam and desiccated topping.

as i mentioned previously i have used my previous tutti frutti cake base for this recipe. basically, i have used the combination of yoghurt, oil and vanilla extract as wet ingredients for this honey cake recipe. this followed by the dry ingredients like maida/plain flour and baking agents. i personally like this combination and also it results in a moist and spongy eggless cake base suitable for any flavoured cake recipe. having said that, you can also check my chocolate cake recipe where i have used the combination of butter and condensed milk as part of wet ingredients. the only disadvantage i feel with this combination is the cake turns hard after a while due to solidification of butter. each time when you serve you may have to reheat it, otherwise it should be equally great.

furthermore some important tips, suggestions and serving ideas for a perfect honey cake recipe. firstly, i have used homemade strawberry jam for this, but you can use store-bought jams too. make sure the jam is fresh and has bright red colour to make it more attractive. moreover, you can also use other flavoured jams like apricot, raspberry or even mixed fruit jams. secondly, you can also add dry fruits to the cake batter to make it more nutty and flavourful. perhaps, walnuts, almonds, pistachios and tutti frutti should be a good option. lastly, you can easily store these cake slices for 4-5 days in airtight container. it should be fresh if you refrigerate it and heat it for 2-30 secs before serving. these slices of honey cake can be ideal for any occasions and can be an instant hit with kids.
