Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat 8"-9" springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Lightly dust pan with flour. Mix together orange juice, honey, olive oil, egg yolks and orange zest. Set aside. Beat egg whites into soft peaks with an electric mixer. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add orange juice mixture and beat until just combined. Gently fold in egg whites until they are just incorporated. Bake 40-50 minutes, or until cake tests done. Let cool on rack 10 minutes. Remove the sides of springform and finish cooling. When cool, sprinkle top with confectioners’ sugar.
