Honey Cinnamon Cake

Honey Cinnamon Cake

Masterchef India has been all over my mind and with so many different challenges I happened to do one. Took some not so popular ingredients and turned them into a cake.

Honey and Cinnamon is an interesting combo and quite an amazing one as well. Made a 2-layer Cake a few days back and I just couldn’t contain my excitement to share the recipe with you’ll.  A soft honey-based vanilla sponge layered with Whipped cream, Honey and a punch of cinnamon taste. Saw some YouTube tutorials for some cake garnishes a few months back and with so much honey in the recipe what better than a honeycomb lookin’ garnishes right. Hope you like the recipe, Happy Baking!!!

For Cake

  • 60 gms Powdered sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 40 ml Honey (3 tbsp)
  • 120 gms Unsalted Butter (1 cup)
  • 250 gms Refined Flour (2 cups)
  • 125 gms Milk powder (1 cup)
  • 5 gms Baking powder (1 1/4th tsp)
  • 3 gms Baking soda (3/4th tsp)
  • 5 ml Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
  • 200 ml Milk (1 cup)

For Icing

  • 500 ml Heavy cream (sweetened) (2 1/2 cups)
  • 8 strands Saffron
  • 10 ml Milk (2 tsp)
  • 42 gms Cinnamon Powder (2 tbsp)

For Decoration

  • 100 gms Sugar (4/5th cup)
  • a pinch Baking soda
  • 100 gms White Chocolate


Cake Sponge

  • Cream together sugar, butter, and honey. Whisk till sugar is well combined. Add in the vanilla extract and mix together.
  • Sieve in the Refined flour, Milk powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Add in the milk gradually and fold in the batter.
  • Transfer the batter to a greased cake mould of your choice and bake the cake in a preheated oven for 20-25 Mins at 170-degree Celsius.


  • Whip some heavy cream, add in the saffron soaked milk to it and beat ittill stiff peaks.
  • Cut the cake into layers once cool. Add in the cream in between, drizzle some honey and Cinnamon powder in between. Continue till all layers are complete, I made only 2 layers for mine.
  • Coat the entire cake with some whipped cream. Refrigerate for some time. Now decorate your cake with some more whipped cream, I put the icing like a baked Alaska. Sprinkle some more cinnamon powder on top of the cake.


  • Melt some white chocolate, add it to a bubble wrap this will give a honeycomb effect. Set in the refrigerator until it sets.  (yes, the wrapwhich comes with your Amazon products)
  • For the second type of cake decoration, start by making a sugar caramel without any water. Once your sugar caramelizes add in a pinch of baking soda and move aside because it is about to bubble up super fast. Add the hot mixture to a baking paper-lined cake mould and let it cool down. Once cool, break into pieces and put them on your cake.
  • Your lovely Simple and a lip-smacking honey cinnamon cake is ready!!!
