  • ½ cup of Local Hive™ from Rice’s Honey®

  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cup flour

Honey Sauce:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup Local Hive™ honey
  • Hot water to thin if needed

How to Bake

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a Bundt pan.

Spread the bottom of the Bundt pan with 1/2 of pecans.

Beat the sugar, oil, honey and vanilla together on medium speed until well blended.

Then, carefully add eggs, one at a time, and beat again until well combined.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then add flour mixture to sugar/egg mixture and beat on medium speed until well blended.

Stir in apples and remaining pecans.

Pour the very thick batter into the Bundt pan).

Bake 55-60 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and set on rack over wax paper. Pour honey sauce over warm cake. Heat up leftover honey sauce to serve with the cake.

To Make Honey Sauce:

In large saucepan combine all ingredients and bring to boil. Your sauce will grow in volume as it cooks. Stir constantly for 2 minutes. Set aside and let it cool down a bit. It should still be warm though when you pour it over the cake.
