Original recipe yields 2 - 8 inch round pans



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8 inch round pans. Stir together the flour baking soda and salt, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg whites and beat until light and fluffy. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk (or yogurt) and vanilla, mixing after each addition. Pour batter into the prepared pans in equal amounts.
  3. Bake cakes for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.
  4. Place first layer onto a plate, cover with some of the caramel frosting, drizzle honey over the cake in a criss-cross pattern. Sprinkle with cashews, cover with the next layer and repeat with remaining ingredients. This cake is best when refrigerated for a day, because the honey is absorbed by the cake.

Great taste! Recipe mentioned salt but didn't say how much. I used 1 tsp. Also mentioned milk or yogurt, but failed to mention how much milk, so I used yogurt. Next time, I won't drizzle any honey over the top layer - it just sat on top of the cake, unabsorbed, and gave the caramel frosting a mottled appearance. I will definitely make this cake again - delicious!!!



I came across this thinking it would be a cute cake idea to bring to a church dinner. Unfortunately, the only thing they liked about it was the name. The cake was too heavy and the frosting was too stiff and hard to work with. Sorry.



This was an awesome cake! I loved every minute of it! I made it for an office party along with a fantastic chocolate cake. The choclate cake was barely touched. It was good!!!
