  • Stand mixer / hand mixer


  • 2 c cake flour
  • 2.25 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c Don Victor Honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Kentucky bourbon optional
  • fresh berries for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Liberally grease a 9x5 loaf pan. Line with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together eggs, vanilla extract, and honey in a bowl. If you choose to add bourbon, add it into the egg/vanilla/honey mixture.
  • Sift the cake flour, kosher salt, and baking powder.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Scrape the bowl down. Add egg/vanilla/honey mixture into the mixing bowl in three even increments. Mix only until incorporated + scrape the bowl after each one-third addition of egg/vanilla/honey.
  • Add in remainder of dry ingredients (sifted cake flour, kosher salt, and baking powder) a little at a time on low speed. Mix just until incorporated.
  • When fully and evenly mixed + combined (be sure to check the bottom of the bowl for dry ingredients), pour the batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Start checking with a toothpick/skewer at 45 minutes. You will want the toothpick/skewer to come out clean.
  • Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Slice, serve with fresh berries, and top with more Don Victor Honey if you desire!
