This rustic, easy-to-make treat is a great starter cake for beginning bakers. It's also a popular recipe for serving on Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) and a lovely dessert to have on the table any day of the year. As it's not overly sweet, a thick slice of it can also be served for breakfast lightly toasted buttered.
- 2 1/4 cup sifted Swans Down® Cake Flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature

- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup sour cream

- Preheat oven to 350℉. Grease a 9-inch bundt pan.
- Whisk flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
- Cream butter, honey, and zest together in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix until combined.
