Well, when I wrote this post about Munchy Honey cakes back in 2015, my kids were tiny, but they loved these! I made them again just this week as a way to rephotograph them.
You know what's funny? They taste even more delicious than I remember them. And, as a way of making them look just a little more interesting, I made them in a silicone cupcake tin and flipped them upside down- it turns them from cupcakes into something unusual. They would be just as delicious warmed up and served with custard.
I also tried them out on 6 other kids this week and they all loved them- so that was a good confirmation that they are delicious! Not that I really needed extra validation, as they are so good! I also explained to Master 6 that these were made because of him when he was a cute little bubba and he got all excited! The old blog post is below.
Who would have thought the words "munchy honey cakes" would cause such furore? I mentioned that I might make some to Master 2 and his excitement was uncontrollable. I think he thought I was going to make the Bananas in Pyjamas appear in the kitchen. (In case you're not a frequent watcher of the Bananas in Pyjamas- honey cakes are the official currency used in Cuddlestown where the show is set).
I have to admit, a little experimenting took place with cooking these as they get brown very quickly, but aren't necessarily done. Keep your eye on them though as they can go from cooked to burnt very quickly!
Now I'm not claiming these are healthy, but they are yummy, satisfying and perfect for a snack. They use honey as a main ingredient so they are sweet, don't say I didn't warn you!
