Honey Pound Cake

Pound cake is always good, but add honey and it becomes subtle and sublime. This delicious variation on traditional pound cake was “cooked up” (see what I did there?) for a bread machine, but you can easily make this by hand. But…why do that when the robots can do all the work for you? Just be sure to follow the directions specifically and you’ll get perfect cake every time!

Servings: 12-16
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours 50 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 cup honey
