My third post for this week’s theme is this ultimate bread like honey cake from Fiji. You might have noticed that am exploring Southern Hemisphere for this week’s blogging marathon. Yes this week’s theme is Explore Southern Hemisphere. After two beautiful dishes, one from Zimbabwe and the another one from Uruguay, here come a fabulous spiced cake. Fiji is a country in South pacific which is an archipelago of more than 300 islands. With Suva as its capital, this country is known as a prefect holiday destination of many. And this country even have some fabulous Hindu temples and recently i crossed a video in Youtube about the Lord Murugan temple in Fiji which was a biggest surprise for a Tamilian like me.

Coming to my today’s post, actually this cake is one of the highly known popular desserts of Fiji. An excellent cake to enjoy with your mid morning tea or coffee or else for your sunday brunch. Actually this cake tastes extremely fabulous and its flavors deepen after a day or two days. Though this cake sounds almost like a quick bread, its calls for a couple of spice powders. The addition of spice powders makes this cake different from other cakes baked with honey. A prefect cake to kick start a day with. We enjoyed this cake both for our breakfast and snacks.
