Nigella's Honey Cake

Speaking of bees & beekeepers (Friday's post).... If you have time this afternoon or evening, you could do worse than make this lovely cake using Nigella Lawson's recipe. Lots of people have half jars of honey about; others have fresh honey from this summer/autumn farmer's markets.

The chubby marzipan bees are fun to make but not required for a tasty cake. It's something to do to keep busy while worrying about the world & please people at the same time. Lots of tea brewing here at GG Central -- when nervous, put on the kettle. The photo is from a terrific blog Food for Thought. The recipe, again, not from scanning our cookbook, is from an NPR site; an article & another honey recipe by Michael Petrucelli. Thanks to both of them.
