Hey, CT & FG!

CT:  This is the raw, unfiltered I use:  http://www.amazon.com/YS-Organic-CERTIFIED-Unprocessed-Unpasteurized/dp/B00014JNI0/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339334796&sr=8-1-spell  I.

I found this honey in the supermarket today. I bought a small jar just to try it. I’m going to be making a honey glaze for the Wowie cake. I thought as long as I have to heat the honey for the glaze, this honey will work.

I’ll let you know how it comes out.

Thanks Anne

Thank you Anne. My recipe for a honey glaze calls for heating honey and brown sugar in a double boiler and then glazing the cake.  Would this honey work for that? When I made this glaze with regular honey it seemed to act like a soaking and kept the cake moist.  Will this honey form a layer on the cake?

Making the Wowie Cake and that glaze will be my project this morning.  A full report to follow.  wink

I didn’t know about adding cream to honey to make a glaze. Hmmm, I wonder if that would work with soy milk or non-fat milk???

No, A baker I spoke with told me that glaze is her standard glaze for shortcake.  It worked well with the chocolate version of the Wowie cake.

Oh, I don’t know either!  It was just a guess!  I thought you were making one of those powdered sugar + cream glazes and just subbing honey for the powdered sugar!

Looking foward to hearing about the cake!!!!!

The honey you recommended is De-licious! It easily melts to a liquid in a double boiler. The brown sugar was perfectly incorporated.

It worked very well in the honey glaze.

Here is a picture of the Wowie cake. The cake is SO moist, I demolished it trying to cut it into squares.

Thanks! What the camera didn’t reveal is Rose’s Spice Cake frosted with the Dreamy Frosting.  Help! My house is turning into a bakery LOL

P.S. Those bars are peanut butter blondies with chocolate chips and honey roasted peanuts

If you google wowie cake, you will find it on a lot of sites. You can make it in many different pans.  It’s a really good recipe.

Oh did you want the recipe? Here it is (the conversion to grams is mine):


This recipe uses an 8x8 pan or a 9 inch round pan.

You can double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan or two 8 inch pans

CHOCOLATE WOWIE CAKE:

1.Oven 350 degrees

2. Line 8x8 pan with parchment or grease and flour 9 inch round pan

3. Sift together in medium bowl:

1 1/2 c (210g) All Purpose Flour
1 c Sugar (200g)
1/4 c (20g)Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda

4. In another bowl, whisk to combine:

1/3 c (72g) Canola Oil
1 tsp Apple Cider or White Vinegar
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 c (237g) Cold Water

5. Add Wet ingredients to Dry ingredients and fold or stir until batter is smooth

6. Scrape batter into pan and bake for 35-40 minutes

Thank you very much! Actually, i needed in grams so it is ok. I wrote it down and give it a try this days. I’m sorry for misunderstood in my previous posts, i wanted your recipe because your wowie cake on the photo looks interesting.  I’m thinking to try instead of cocoa powder to put melted chocolate and i hope i won’t ruin it with too much sweet taste. Thanks again!

You’re welcome Cookie Monster. The recipe is very versatile. I will be interested to see how your substitution works.

You can also substitute the cocoa powder for almond flour for a non-chocolate cake.

Good luck

Yes but nothing fancy, just classic six point star cutter. Do you have some proposal?
