Honey Cupcake

Yum! It brings back so many memories. Honey cake is a standard cake in all the bakeries in India. It is such an easy cake to make. You can make Honey Cake in big pans as well. I like making them as cupcakes. It is nothing but a twist to regular sponge cake or pound cake. You can either make this cake from scratch or you can use a store bought cake. Rest of the ingredients are so simple: Honey, rose water, strawberry jam and desiccated coconut.

Ingredients for Cake,

3/4  cups all-purpose flour

1  tsp baking powder

1 large egg, at room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup of unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 cup milk

 

Prepping,

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Swift the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt together. Keep it aside.Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy and aerated.

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy and aerated.

Note: You can increase the amount of sugar you want. I am adding less sugar because of the syrup and jam that I will be adding later.

Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat until all the ingredients are combined.

Add all-purpose flour and milk little by little. Do not over beat the batter.

Line a cupcake tray with liners. Scoop in the batter. You can fill 6 cupcake liners. Bake them for 15 -18 mins or until a toothpick comes clean.  While the cupcake is oven you can make the syrup and glaze.

Once done. Transfer the cupcakes to cooling rack. Let them cool for 5 minutes.

 

Ingredients for Syrup and Glaze,

1/4 cup of honey

1 tsp of rose water

1/2 cup of water

1/4 cup of strawberry jam

1/4 cup of desiccated coconut

Prepping,

In a sauce pan just warm up the honey, rose water and water in a saucepan for about 5 minutes in a medium flame.

Melt the jam over the stove at a medium flame. It will take only 2 minutes or just microwave for a minute.

Make few holes in cupcakes using a toothpick.

Spoon the syrup over each cupcake generously. Cupcakes should be soaked completely. Let it sit for ten minutes. Don’t worry if your cupcake liner is getting wet.
