"HONIGKOCK"a DUTCH BUTTER CAKE From a Penn.1968 Church Cookbook

Nancy J. Patrykus


Another recipe I have made a couple times,I love the spices.
I had noted on the book, that I had purchased this cook book in 1980 at a garage sale in Ohio, of all places!
On my way to Niagara Falls we stopped at a restaurant to eat, and across the street was this garage sale.... Whoopee!!
I am always looking for old cook books!

How to Make "HONIGKOCK"a DUTCH BUTTER CAKE From a Penn.1968 Church Cookbook


  1. Mix together the first seven ingredients.
    Now add the last four ingredients together and mix well.
    Combine both mixes.
    Put in 2 greased and floured, 9x5x3 pans.
    Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour, or till done.
  2. This is an old traditional DUTCH recipe.
    Delicious,cut into slices,toasted and buttered.
    Honey helps to keeps this cake moist.
    It is like a fruitcake,it improves if kept in a cool place and tightly covered.

  3. A good memory is fine-
    but the ability to forget is
    the true test of greatness.
