Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour an 8-inch square cake pan.
In a medium bowl, beat together butter, sugar, honey and vanilla until well combined. Add eggs and beat until fluffy.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to egg mixture alternately with milk. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
