Shortbread Cake

This is one of our favorite dessert recipes to make. It uses honey instead of sugar, and is not overly sweet. We serve it with fruits (and usually whipped cream because I am always looking for an excuse to eat more whipped cream!)

Shortbread Cake


1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla


Grease an 8” x 8” pan.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl until well blended.

Pour into pan and bake about 20 minutes, until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle.

This makes a great shortbread for strawberry shortcake or any other fruit dessert, especially when served with whipped cream.
