Greek Honey Cake

This relatively simple cake is simple enough to bake in the galley. Naturally sweetened and light, you’ll feel like you’ve indulged in a meal fit for an olive oil tycoon. Enjoy this Greek Honey Cake while cruising!


½ cup butter
¾ cup honey
½ cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. cinnamon
2 cups self-rising flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ cup sugar
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

½ cup butter
½ tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. grated lemon peel


Preheat oven to 350°F. Place butter in a pan over high heat and stir until brown. Remove from heat. In a bowl, mix honey, milk, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon, then add browned butter, flour, baking soda, sugar, and nuts. Pour into an 8×8-inch greased cake pan. Bake for 18–20 minutes.

For glaze, melt butter until browned, add thyme and lemon peel, and spoon evenly over cake.
