Yeah, too healthy, you should put in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips…no, NOT really, just joking. If you omit the wheat germ maybe you could just put in some more flour instead? try it and let us know how it was. Honestly, though, it doesn’t taste like wheat germ cake, it’s yummy and my picky people over here do like it. but if you are a chocolate chip cookie and brownie person…skip this and go for it!
I am more a lemon-meringue pie and cheesecake kind of person. But For the Yomim Noraim through Simchas Torah, we have GOT to have lots and lots of really good homemade honey cake, much of which never makes it to the yom tov tisch.
How do you know how much fat your cake has per serving?
Btw the chocolate chips idea sounds so yummy for honey cake! 🍯🍫🍰😄
