Nagasaki style honey cake Nagasaki style honey cake
Number of Servings: 8


    4 eggs, separated
    1/4 c. honey
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 c. milk


Preheat oven to 350F
Prep loaf pan by buttering generously and lining bottom and sides with parchment. Can also butter top of bottom parchment and line with sugar (turbinado is best)

Separate eggs and bring to room temperature
Combine honey and sugar. Set aside
Sift together dry ingredients. Set aside

Beat egg whites in a standing mixture until foamy. Add honey/sugar mixture and whip until glossy. Add egg yolks one by one, beating well after each incorporation.

Add dry ingredients and milk in thirds, finishing with an addition of milk. (Batter will be thin.) Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. (Check after 20, oven times do vary.)

For moistness, make a glaze of 2 tbsp of honey and a little water. When the cake is done, take it out of the oven and brush immediately with the honey mixture. Let cool for 10 ~ 15 minutes, remove from pan and wrap in plastic wrap. Place cooling cake in fridge for 3 to 4 hours. Failure to do so will result in a drier cake.

Number of Servings: 8
