Honey Cake

Madeiran Honey Cake, also known as “Bolo de Mel,” is a beloved treat. This dense and moist cake is made using a combination of flour, eggs, spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, and a generous amount of sugar cane molasses. The molasses not only provides a deep caramel-like flavor but also contributes to the cake’s rich, dark color. The use of sugar cane molasses in Madeiran Honey Cake is a nod to the island’s historical ties to sugar cane cultivation. The molasses, a byproduct of sugar production, adds a unique sweetness and complexity to the cake. It gives the Bolo de Mel its distinct taste that is both robust and smooth, making it a true delight for the senses.
