Creamy and sweet with a hint of warm cinnamon, this Honey Lover's Honey Cake will have you buzzing with joy! Honey is baked into the cake - and just be sure the honey flavor comes through - the cake is topped with a creamy honey butter cream frosting. For those who just can't get enough, we drizzled the finished cake with honey and topped with a honeycomb for a little extra flair.

Honey Lover's Honey Cake
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
6 servings


  • 1/2 cup salted butter, slightly softened
  • 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup honey-flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup honey

Creamy Honey Frosting

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 8-inch round cake pans and set aside.
  2. In bowl of your stand mixer, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, scraping sides of bowl to combine after each.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a large liquid measuring glass, whisk together Greek yogurt, milk, and honey. With the mixer on medium low, add flour and yogurt mixtures alternately, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl to combine.
  4. Evenly divide batter among cake pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until tops of cakes spring back when lightly touched in center. Let cool in pans for 8 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. Prepare frosting - In bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and combined. Add vanilla. Add powdered sugar, beating on low for 1 minute, until just barely combined. Add honey and beat on high speed for one minute, until fluffy.
  6. Assemble and frost cooled cake. Drizzle with honey before serving. Top with honeycomb, if desired.
