Paleo Honey Cake

Most honey cake recipes include coffee, I left it out of this one to simplify the recipe and make it a couple of steps easier.

My husband loved this cake — as you can see from the photo, a large piece has been devoured. And a friend said it was the best honey cake she had ever eaten, gluten-free or not; however, I'll let you all be the judge of that!
