Honey is an invert sugar formed from natural floral nectar’s gathered by bees. Fructose and glucose rank as the predominate carbohydrates, with maltose and sucrose present in small percentages as well as trace amounts of nutrients.

1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking soda
4-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat eggs well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well to make a soft dough. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do NOT over bake. Cool and frost with your favorite icing.

Watch Honey Labels

Always be sure to get pure honey – some companies are mixing honey with cheaper sweeteners like sugar and corn syrup to cut costs. The FDA has called for full disclosure when honey is cut with anything else. Watch for labels that say “pure honey“. Steer clear of any honey labeled “honey blend“. Recommended honey: Ambrosia Pure Honey#, nature’s soother, is more than just sweet, it’s PURE.

Did you know?

Honey tastes sweeter than sugar. When substituting honey for sugar (other than in baked goods), start by using half as much honey as sugar; then adjust to taste. Choose a mild honey when you want to sweeten a dish without making a major flavor change. See Sweet Choice of Honey for more.
