Cake Ingredients:

-3 large eggs

-3/4 cup Queen Farina honey

-1/2 cup white sugar

-1/4 cup light brown sugar

-1 1/4 cup canola oil

-1 1/2 tsp vanilla

-3 cups all purpose baking flour

-1 tsp baking powder

-1 tsp baking soda

-1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

-3/4 tsp salt

-1/4 tsp allspice

-Dash of ground gloves

-4 Granny Smith apples: peeled, cored, and shredded

 

You will also need:

-9 inch Bundt cake pan

 

Cook Time: 75 Minutes

Total Time: 2 Hours

Servings: 10

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 

 

Mix the eggs together in a large bowl, then slowly add in the vanilla, oil, brown sugar, white sugar, and honey. 

In a separate bowl, pour the flour. Then mix into the flour the cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and spices.  Add the flour mixture into the first bowl with the liquids and stir well until everything has been evenly blended. Then mix in the shredded apples. 

 

Pour the mixed batter evenly into a sprayed bundt pan. (Do not fill pan more than 3/4 full). Place cake in oven for 74-90 minutes. It’s finished cooking when the edges of the cake pull away from the pan and darken. If you’re unsure, insert a toothpick into center, if it comes out clean it’s done. 

 

Let cake cool for 10 minutes in the bunt pan, then flip it onto a flat plate to finish cooling. Then sprinkle 3 tbsp of powdered sugar evenly on top of the cake. 

And enjoy!

Why Bee Suits are the New Black

Ok, so beekeeping suits are typically white, but the Queen Farina ladies are bringing sexy back and making bee suits the new black.   I've complimented my getup with leopard print rubber boots.  This not only camouflages me against the other wild African animals here in Northern Utah, but it also makes for some questionable looks from neighboring farmers. 

The fact is that bee suits are HOT, and not just sexy, but literally hot.  It's around 95 degrees outside during the typical beekeeping summer day and my hair is tickling my nose and stuck to my forehead with sweat.  I'll strip out of my bee suit in a soaking hot mess and think to myself "I make this look gooood!"
