Rosh Hashanah is just a week away, and if you’re stuck firmly in the “I don’t really like honey cake” camp, I’ve got some really good news for you. You’re going to love this honey cake!
A while ago, I had this idea. What if I could take a honey cake, keep the moistness and flavor, but give it an extra burst of flavor with something to tone down that strong honey flavor that not everyone loves? Enter Best Select Dutch Process cocoa powder! This high-quality cocoa is high-quality, and really intense in the chocolate flavor. Add it to honey cake, and it’s definitely the dominant flavor in the cake, but there’s a nice undertone of honey, which works perfectly with the chocolate! This cake is so moist, it’s amazing. Just look:
So if you’re ready for a change on the typical honey cake, try this one. You may just find yourself making it all year long!

- 4 eggs
- ⅔ cup sugar
- ⅔ cup oil
- 1 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch salt
- ½ cup Best Select Dutch Process Cocoa Powder
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup milk or parve milk
- Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a bundt pan and set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together eggs, sugar, oil, honey, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda and salt until creamy.
- Add cocoa, half the flour, half the milk, then the remaining flour and milk. Beat until just combined.
- Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Cool completely before adding glaze (see below), if using.
This cake is fantastic without a glaze, but you can punch up the honey flavor (and looks!) with a honey glaze if you like.
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon soy milk
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
