While preparing at home for a fun cooking night with my family, I felt something was missing from our dinner plans. Ah, yes of course! I needed a tasty baked dessert that would bring a deliciously sweet conclusion to our family night. This sweet conclusion should probably pair well with a cup of coffee too :). I decided that a freshly baked cake would be a perfect dessert to have at the end of our family night of cooking!
One of the great things about this cake recipe is that you will most likely have all of the ingredients already in your kitchen. This is the main reason why I choose to bake this cake. I wanted a recipe with simple ingredients, so I didn't have to get my big butt up to drive to the grocery store. So I asked myself, "What kind of cake can I make with the foods I already have in my fridge and pantry?"
After searching through my favorite cook books and my go-to healthy food blogs, I finally came across this Lemon Olive Oil Cake recipe on Christina's food blog, theblissfulbalance.com. If you haven't checked out her healthy food blog, please visit and explore her fun and healthy recipes!
This recipe only needed 6 ingredients, lemons, olive oil, sugar, flour, eggs and salt. How easy is that! I have slightly changed her recipe to fit my preferences, I swapped honey to replace granulated sugar, chose organic whole wheat flour, and also added a simple sweet lemony glaze to drizzle on top. Yum!
While honey doesn't have a ton of nutritional value, it does offer some great antioxidant benefits! It's also sweeter to taste than granulated sugar, and typically makes baked goods more moist, chewy and flavorful.
The lemony glaze is a simple and clean recipe, and can be prepared while your cake is baking!
I hope you enjoy this delicious, nutritious, and very moist Honey Lemon Cake with a Lemony Glaze!
