Tuesday Try A New Taste

April 22, 2008 at 5:07 pm (Beltane, Honey, Recipe, Tuesday)

As Beltane is fast approaching, here is a Beltane themed recipe. I found this at Wicca and they sound absolutely yummy! :

Fried Honeycakes
From Wisteria’s Faery Recipes

These cakes are not unlike those made on the night before Beltane by women around the turn of the century. These cakes were left in the garden to please Faery visitors.

  • 1/2 cup sweet white wine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Beat the wine & egg in a medium bowl. Combine the flour, cinnamon, salt & sugar in a small bowl. Stir into the egg mixture. Let stand 30 minutes. Combine the honey & nutmeg in a small bowl. Heat 1/2-inch of the oil in a frying pan until hot, but not smoking. Drop the batter into the oil 1 tablespoon at a time; fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dip into the honey.
Yield: 1 1/2 Dozen.

Can also be eaten on Lammas and the Day of the Dryads.
