Extra moist and sweet, this chocolate chip honey cake is so flavorful and so easy to make. Dress it up with a thin layer of chocolate ganache and you have an irresistible snack cake!
I used to be terrified of bundt cakes. Well, not the cake itself, but baking it. In my defense I had some bad experiences where the cake was stuck in all the pan’s crevices. For a while baking a bundt cake was not even taken into consideration. I was sure I was going to fail. What was the point of wasting time and ingredients. I had better things to do.
But this little blog of mine pushed my baking adventures until I was comfortable enough to try bundt cakes again and again until I was able to take them out of the pan in one piece.
Now, making a bundt cake is a breeze.
And not just that. But I love a baking challenge, especially one for a good cause.
A couple of weeks ago the nice people at MightyNest invited me to participate in their “Bake your bundt off” campaign.

For the very first time I baked a bundt cake in a glass pan. Terrified! Not because I had to bake a bundt cake, but I was afraid I might drop the gorgeous Simax glass bundt pan and shatter it to a gazillion of pieces. Luckily I did not! It would have been quite a shame to break a pan that’s not only beautiful but because it’s made of borosilicate glass can withstand temps up to 932 degrees F.
Now, not only do I have my Simax glass bundt pan still in one piece, but I get to talk about the honey cake I made in it with you.
Just like most of the cakes, you start by creaming the butter with honey. No sugar added to this cake!
Once they are mixed together, beat in 3 eggs, vanilla extract, flour, greek yogurt and chocolate chips. Unlike most of the recipes on my blog, this honey cake calls for whole wheat pastry flour. Since I wanted to make a healthier cake by leaving the sugar out I thought it would be fun to use some whole wheat instead of the all purpose flour. The moisture of the cake is given by the addition of Greek yogurt.
One quick note on the chocolate chips. I only added 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips. Although it was a nice touch, I think next time I might add 3/4 cup chips or add mini chocolate chips giving the impression they are a lot more. But that’s just me!
We tried the cake the day I made it, once it was all cooled and ready for pictures but I have to say I loved it more the second day. All the flavors of the honey had time to infuse the entire cake making it so flavorful!
This is definitely one of those cakes that gets better with the age.
