Honey Cake Bites
Posted by: Jamie Carney In: Recipes
Oh my sweet cake bites! Rejoice them because I would like to remind you, it is my first recipe posted here. I combined honey, sweetness and taste to those sweet cake bites. Enjoy!
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 cup honey
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, cooled
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons whiskey or bourbon
- Put oven rack in middle position and preheat to 350°F. Oil loaf pan well and dust with flour, knocking out excess.
- Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and ginger in a small bowl. Whisk honey, oil, and coffee in another bowl until well combined.
- Beat together eggs and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at high speed 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low, then add honey mixture and whiskey and mix until blended, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Finish mixing batter with a rubber spatula, scraping bottom of bowl.
- Pour batter into loaf pan (batter will be thin) and bake 30 minutes. Cover top loosely with foil and continue to bake until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan and a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes more.
- Run a knife around side of cake, then invert rack over pan and invert cake onto rack. Turn cake right side up and cool completely.
- Once cooled, crumble the cake into a large bowl using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. Add the frosting and mix until well combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. ?
- Next, line a baking tray with wax paper. Use a melon baller as a scooper to form balls with the cake mixture. Place on wax paper. Once you have used all of the cake mixture, place the baking tray in the freezer for 1 hour. While the baking tray is in the freezer, melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave, stirring every 10-15 seconds until smooth. At this point you can add a bit of food coloring if you are using white chocolate.
- After an hour, remove the balls from the freezer. Using one toothpick, pick up the balls one at a time and dip in the chocolate. Use a second toothpick to slide the ball off the first toothpick onto the wax paper lined baking tray.
