The Amish Cook's Baking Book
Lovina Eicher and Kevin Williams
Some Amish do keep bees so that they can make and sell their own honey. Pure homemade honey tastes delicious. I often use honey in place of molasses in recipes because we seem to prefer the taste. This bar is delicious with a strong taste of honey.
Makes 2 dozen bars


    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
    • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1 cup walnuts, chopped


    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, stir the sugar, flour, baking soda, and cinnamon until evenly mixed. Then add in the egg, vegetable oil, honey, and nuts. Stir until the mixture is smooth.

Spoon into an ungreased jelly-roll pan or 9 by 13-inch pan.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

To make the glaze:
In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, vanilla, water, and mayonnaise until smooth and creamy.
Spread onto the honey bars while they are still warm.

Store the bars in a sealed container or cake safe. These will stay fresh for 3 to 4 days.
