Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Preheat oven to 350°.
Add instant coffee and baking soda to hot coffee and mix well. Set aside.
Beat egg whites until stiff, adding cream of tartar while still beating.
In a separate bowl beat yolks and coffee mixture together with remaining ingredients. Fold in egg whites. Pour into an ungreased angel food pan. Bake 50 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.
Invert pan and allow cake to cool 30 minutes before removing from pan.
