Christmas Saffron Honey Cake

Hope all are having a very nice time with friends and family on this christmas holidays . While all are busy in holidays here I got today an very delicious tea time cake with lots of flavor and aroma in it . We just love tea time cakes and I made this cake as I had this idea of making a cake flavored with some indian spice and to give it a indian touch I included Saffron and cardamom to the cake it turned out a super soft and delicious cake and perfect to snack on any time .

This month for SYS viji had given us wonderful ingredients choices and I got honey as my ingredient and so I made this delicious cake with honey in it . The honey brings a lovely brown color to the outer part of the cake and these were super soft that we where really tempted to finish them the same day. A very light and moist cake with wonderful aroma is what makes it more irresistible. Let mov on to the recipe for this  yummy cake.

Oil - 1/4 cup
