I saw the first patch of dandelions at the train station yesterday- hopefully the bees aren’t too far behind! :honeybee: Perhaps a cake like this will help welcome them and all the lovely things of spring :blossom:

Thanks so much for the recipe, @Amethyst! :heart:

Blessed Beltane! My family and I started our day with warm slices of honey cake straight from the oven! We enjoyed it outside on our porch, listening to the birds and watching a pair build a nest!

Thanks again for the recipe! It is lovely and light! We were out of oranges, so I skipped the zest, but it is still amazing! My kids said it is amazing and that I should make it all the time.
