Honey Glaze…A Sweet Treat Recipe From Sweet Basil


IMG_1826This recipe takes the classic powdered sugar glaze, that we have all been using for years, and adds a little honey. Click here for the Fresh Apple Cake Recipe. But, oh, how the honey enhances the sweetness! This glaze has a light taste and is perfect for any type of fruit cakes or fruit breads. The honey makes the texture super smooth, so make sure the cake is totally smooth…Or, if you’re like me, the inside parts of a bundt cake are my favorite….ooey and gooey from soaking up the glaze in the middle. Yum!

Honey Glaze:
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar (sifted)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons milk

Glaze: Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set the bowl aside.

Allow the cake to cool completely, before glazing it.
