Honey Sesame Cakes are a delightful treat that combines the nutty flavor of sesame seeds with the natural sweetness of honey. These small, round cakes are not only delicious but also offer a pleasant textural contrast thanks to the inclusion of toasted sesame seeds both inside and as a topping.

The base of Honey Sesame Cakes typically involves a simple batter made from flour, eggs, and butter, sweetened primarily with honey which lends a distinct flavor and moistness to the cakes. The addition of sesame seeds adds a crunchy texture and a rich, nutty taste that complements the sweetness of the honey perfectly.

Often, these cakes are enhanced with a touch of vanilla or a pinch of cinnamon to deepen the flavor profile. Once baked, they are usually brushed with additional honey and sprinkled generously with more sesame seeds, creating a sticky, sweet exterior that is irresistibly enticing.

Honey Sesame Cakes are enjoyed around the world, with variations seen in different cuisines, often served as a dessert, a snack with tea, or even as a festive treat during special occasions. Their combination of sweet and savory elements makes them a unique and satisfying choice for any palate.

  1. In a clean bowl, put together eggs, sugar, and honey and use a hand mixer to beat until thickened, pale yellow and very puffy. Mix well baking powder and cake flour, sift into the mixture in thirds, gently cut the flour into the mixture until well combined. Add in vegetable oil, gently cut it in until well combined.

By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.
