With its rich history and incomparable fame, honey is a must-have ingredient in our kitchens. Used in savory recipes, desserts, drinks, beautifying facemasks or to recover from a cold, honey is a very versatile, staple ingredient. So much so that rather than talk about this honey almond sponge cake recipe, I will first give you some details about honey itself. I did a small investigation about the goodness of this marvelous elixir. Here’s a brief summary of what I found:
The flavor and color of honey is determined by the type of flower from which the nectar was obtained. Generally, the darker the color of the honey, the stronger the taste. In commercial production it’s common to mix different varieties of honey to maintain stable color and flavor, but this has no impact on its quality. Normally, honey producers find their honeycombs in zones where there is an abundance of a specific kind of flower, and for this reason, the flavors of the honeys harvested are always similar.
Honey is preserved in hermetically-sealed containers at room temperature. Do not refrigerate. With some recipes you can substitute sugar for honey, but the process is somewhat complex because you have to also reduce the amount of suggested liquid in the recipe.
Now I leave you with a honey almond sponge cake recipe that you’re going to love so much. The honey keeps the cake moister longer, and the texture of this quequito (cake) is delicate and so rica.
