Tips and Recommendations

  • For a smokier flavor, consider adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika to the marinade. 
  • If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling to prevent them from burning. 
  • To achieve those beautiful grill marks, make sure the grill grates are clean and well-oiled before placing the chicken on them. 
  • Feel free to adjust the level of red pepper flakes based on your spice preference. 
  • To check for doneness, use a meat thermometer – the internal temperature should reach 165°F (75°C). 
  • Experiment with different side dishes and sauces to complement the flavors of the grilled chicken steak.


1. Can I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour for a healthier version? 

Yes, you can substitute whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour to make a healthier version of this honey cake. Keep in mind that the texture and flavor may be slightly different. 

2. Can I use almond flour instead of sliced almonds for the topping? 

While almond flour can be used, it won't provide the same crunchy texture as sliced almonds. You can try using almond meal or finely chopped almonds for a similar effect. 

3. Can I make this cake without eggs for a vegan version? 

Yes, you can make this cake vegan by using egg substitutes like applesauce, mashed bananas, or commercial egg replacers. Ensure you also use plant-based butter and buttermilk alternatives.

4. Can I freeze this cake for later?

Yes, you can freeze this cake. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in an airtight container before freezing. Thaw it in the refrigerator before serving. 

5. What can I serve with this honey cake? 

This honey cake is delicious on its own, but you can enhance it with a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra special treat.

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  • 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and ground nutmeg. Set this dry mixture aside.
  • 3. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • 4. Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • 5. Stir in the honey and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • 6. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry mixture. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  • 7. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  • 8. Sprinkle the sliced almonds evenly over the top of the cake batter.
  • 9. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • 10. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
