Honey Cake

Honey cake is one of the most iconic pastries to come out of Bangalore (or so the legend goes). It may not be as well known in other places, but it is such a delightful recipe that it is worth trying at least once. The simple idea behind the cake is layering sponge cake soaked in honey syrup or sauce. It is topped with reduced jam, preferably the mixed fruit kind and desiccated coconut. It is a simple dessert which takes only a modest amount of time to make and is easy to nail even for a beginner.

This honey cake recipe is by Chef Avin Thaliath. Avin is a chef, educationist, an entrepreneur, author and a PhD holder. An educationist at heart, he currently serves as the Co-founder & Director of Academics at Lavonne Academy of Baking Science and Pastry Arts, India. He has authored a number of academic journals, books, and monographs and has presented award-winning papers at top-level industry summits. Chef Avin has also served as Assistant Professor at Christ University, Bangalore. With a profile as strong as his, Chef Avin has been featured on television talk shows. His experience in the industry spans many years and he lends his proficiency to the art and science of Baking and Patisserie arts especially as an educationist.
