Print Friendly 

Description:
Here is a surprisingly light and delicious cake that is sugar free. It is gluten free as well. Make the Honey Meringue to top it off and you have a wonderful dessert to serve your guests.
The 3 key health benefits of honey are related to the fact that:
1. Honey is nature's energy booster
2. Honey is a great immunity system builder
3. Honey is a natural remedy for many ailments
The health benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar.

Add apples and nuts and stir to mix well. Pour batter into a well sprayed or parchment lined 9”x9” cake pan. Spread out batter keeping the sides higher than the center.

Honey Meringue

In a very small sauce pan simmer honey until it reaches soft-ball stage 245°.
Meanwhile beat the egg whites to soft peaks. While still beating, slowly add the hot honey. Continue beating until lukewarm and egg whites are firmer.
This frosting will not keep as it separates after sitting for a while. It is best used the first day. Great for those who cannot have dairy.
