Honey and Walnut Cake Recipe
If you like honey and walnuts, this cake will definitely be your favourite. It is both soft and fragrant, very tasty, and its consistency gets better instead of stale the next day.
You may be wondering if I can make the recipe with molasses, too. I had tried tahini & molasses muffins before and I was very satisfied. But as you can imagine, molasses darkens the color of the cake. In the meantime, there has been some discussion lately that molasses should not be cooked. If you are obsessed with such topics, do some research to see what it is and what it is not.
If you ask my opinion; We don't have to eat molasses cake every day, I think 1-2 slices of molasses cake won't kill us either. In addition, the carcinogenic content in cooked molasses may even be innocent in addition to the vegetables and fruits with so many hormones and pesticides that we eat. Please do not create the perception that I am misleading people by encouraging people to use molasses in foods. I just wanted to share how I approach such events in my own life.
If you're going to try the recipe, don't forget to eat a slice for me. If you have a cup of freshly brewed tea with you, mention my name, my ears will ring, I will understand :)
