Honey cake is a Beltane tradition for many and a full moon tradition too.

Preparation Time:


1 c. raw sugar
1 c. local honey
1/4 c. coconut oil
1/2 c. applesauce
3 eggs
2 tsp grated orange zest
1 cup orange juice
2 1/2 c. flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Sift all the dry ingredients except the sugar into a large bowl.
  2. Combine all the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Pour liquid slowly into dry ingredients a little at a time, beating as you go until all ingredients are just incorporated.
  4. Pour the batter into a greased 9x13 pan.
  5. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Then test to see if a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If not, bake another 5 minutes and test again.
