Amish Honey and Apple Cake

I love Amish bread and cake recipes since discovering them – lots of easy to follow recipes and traditional recipes to try. This is a basic apple and honey cake recipe which I have added to and altered to make it work for my family’s tastes!

Amish Apple and Honey Cake with cinnamon glaze and lemon zest:

Ingredients:

Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup honey
  • 4 apples (peel, core and grate)
  • half tsp allspice
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 and a half tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • half cup brown sugar
  • half cup white sugar

Topping:

  • Wet Icing – icing sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, cold water
  • Zest of 1 lemon

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180’C.
  2. Mix all the cake ingredients together and pop into an 8 inch cake tin.
  3. Bake for approximately 90 minutes.
  4. Leave out on a wire rack to thoroughly cool before glazing.
  5. Combine wet icing ingredients to your required consistency. Drizzle over the cake diagonally (best done in an icing bag or sandwich bag with cut out corner!).
  6. Grate Lemon Zest on top of iced cake and sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on.
