Pain d'Epices Honey Cake

Pain d'Epices Honey Cake

France's original gingerbread.

Though “pain d’épices” translates from French literally as “spice bread,” it’s more commonly called “honey cake” in English. The name is fitting. This loaf-shaped cake, made in Burgundy in the heart of France’s honey cake homeland, is sweetened with a generous dose of honey, which balances beautifully with the tangy rye-based cake. Lightly spiced with ginger, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and more, the cake is floral. It's topped with a sugar crumble.

Unlike a powerhouse American gingerbread, this French take is much more subtle, allowing the honey to shine. Perfect to nibble alongside tea or as a lighter dessert option. 

Comes nestled in a colorful, cartooned gift box and serves 6-8.
