Recipe Notes

When my friend gave me a jar of his own honey, I knew I had to use it for a special honey cake. He keeps hives in the Abbeville area. The honey from his bees is very dark; it derives from the Tulip Poplar nectar the bees gather. It is, hands down, the best honey I’ve ever tried. This recipe will work with other types of honey too, though!
