Rustic French Honey Cake/ Bizcocho rústico de miel francés

Hey pixels, I don’t know if this happens to you too, but I’m always looking for new breakfast recipes. I like to eat new things at morning, as a good way to start the day… This week new recipe is the following one, based on this recipe from Food 52 This cake is completely different from the usual cakes or sweet pastries I use to eat always. But it’s yummy and matches perfectly with a glass of soy milk or a coffee!! You can add even an orange juice (or a home made kiwifruit juice) to complete your breakfast!!

La versión en español está al final de la entrada. Gracias, mis queridos pixels 🙂

  1. This looks yummy!!! Breakfast is always a hard one for me. During the week, I am in my office for work at 7 am, so I normally have to bring a breakfast with me that I can eat at my desk, or get warm food from the cafeteria. I also am trying really hard to be healthy and lose weight, so I try and have a healthy breakfast as well. On the weekends, I usually make something from scratch or go out to eat. I want to try this for sure – it looks like it would be good to make if you are having friends over for coffee!

    Please, tell me if you make it!! It’s healthy and it can help you, due to honey has less calories than sugar..
