Chocolates, wine and roses are easy but did you know:
You can catch more love with honey than chocolate this Valentine’s day?
Bake your Honey a Honey Cake
Did you know that honey is an aphrodisiac? Honey is a complete food used throughout history for its ability to supply energy and nutrients. When tested against other foods it ranked number one for sustaining performance and quick recovery. Sounds like an aphrodisiac to me! So how about a honey cake for your honey sprinkled with aphrodisiacs spices and erotic wine for Valentine’s Day?
Original recipe By Doctor Lynn from Sex Matters… so get Sexually Healthy the Natural Way
Serving honey is an ancient way of honoring guests.
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of Strega wine (or any sweet white wine, but Strega is best)
5 egg yolks
7 egg whites
1½ teaspoons of salt
1 tablespoon of grated orange peel
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon each of cinnamon, cloves,
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line the bottom of an 8-inch spring-form pan with oiled parchment or a brown paper bag cut to size. Oil the pan and paper well.
Whisk egg yolks with honey for five minutes. Add orange peel. Sift flour with salt and spices. Gradually stir into egg yolks and honey mixture. Add wine and olive oil, stirring constantly as you add small amounts. Beat the egg whites until stiff and then fold into batter. Pour batter into pan and bake for 20 minutes. Turn oven off and let cake sit for 10 minutes. Remove cake from oven. Turnover and detach from spring pan carefully.
Sprinkle top with a mixture of cinnamon and ground dark chocolate. Serve with a side of orange sorbet.
