"My all time favorite honey cake, the addition of the tea is what sets this cake apart from all others! I most always glaze the top of the cooled cake with 1/2 cup sifted confectioners sugar mixed with 1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice Make certain to grease your pan very well, I use my Pan Release for greasing"
