        On medium heat melt the butter into the milk until combined and warm.

        Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

        Pour warm milk and butter into dry ingredients and mix well. The mixture will not be as thin as cake batter – that is ok.

        Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease pan with butter and pour the batter into a baking dish – the cake will not rise, and should be a thickness of 1/4”– 1/2”.

        Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is browned.




In a saucepan combine water, sugar and honey. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes until it has reduced to a syrup.


When cake is removed from the oven, place onto serving dish and cover with syrup. You may want to poke the cake with a fork to allow the syrup to permeate into the cake. You can top with nuts, or powdered sugar or coconut.
