4 Honey-Based Recipes That Will Make You Buzz

Nothing encapsulates the natural sweetness of life like honey. From the ancient times of brick-and-mortar bee hives to our modern kitchen countertops, this golden nectar has been a staple that works marvels across cuisines and palates. We’re here to offer something sweet for you to enjoy today. Keep reading for honey-based recipes that will make you buzz with joy and eagerness for seconds.

Recipe 1: Honey Garlic Chicken

The sweet and savory notes of honey and garlic dancing on tender chicken breasts are a culinary rhapsody. This dish is simple yet sophisticated for a special meal.


For the chicken, you need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless breasts
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper for taste

For the sauce, you need:

  • 4 minced cloves of garlic (or 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder)
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch

Sesame seeds are an optional garnish.


To make the sauce, simply mix all the ingredients together.

Next, coat your chicken breasts, and then lay them to rest in an olive oil-coated skillet over medium heat. The chicken should cook for 5 minutes until it’s cooked all the way through, to at least 165°F or 75°C.

Don’t dump the oil or clean the skillet out. After removing the chicken, add the garlic and cook it until it’s fragrant. If you’re cooking with garlic powder, stir it more often to avoid burning.

Then, stir in your sauce. After just a few seconds, the cornstarch should react with the heat to thicken your sauce in the skillet.

Finally, return the chicken to the skillet and coat each piece with the sauce. Then, remove it from the heat source and add your garnish of sesame seeds if you choose. Serve this sticky, lip-smacking dish with a simple side of white rice and steamed vegetables.

Recipe 2: Honey-Yogurt Parfait

Start your day right with this healthy indulgence. Layers of creamy yogurt, fresh fruit, and honey create a breakfast delight that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to your health-conscious palate.


For this heavenly dessert, you need four simple ingredients:

  • Greek yogurt
  • Fresh mixed berries
  • Granola
  • Honey


To make this honey-yogurt parfait, start by stirring however much honey you want into your Greek yogurt. Then, add a layer of this honey-infused yogurt to a bowl, glass, or jar. Next, add berries, sprinkle over some granola, and drizzle on more honey with a spoon. Mmm! A delicious, picture-perfect dessert that’s ready to devour in five minutes.

Recipe 3: Honey Cake With Caramel Apples

This honey cake is a celebration of textures and flavors. The party of flavor includes buttery caramel apples and a sprinkle of sea salt.


What do we need for this tasty dessert? Here are the ingredients for the cake:

  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of orange juice
  • 2 apples (peeled, cored, and chopped)

For the caramel apples, you need:

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2 apples (sliced)


To prepare the cake batter, whisk together your dry ingredients in a large bowl. Next, get another bowl and mix the wet ingredients together. Then, gradually combine both. Fold in the chopped apples and pour the cake mix into a greased pan, baking it for 30–40 minutes at 350°F.

As for the caramel apples, grab a saucepan and melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and heavy cream. Cook and stir continuously until it starts to boil. Stir in the sea salt promptly after removing it from the heat. Now, toss in the apple slices.

Once cooled, slowly spread the caramel apples over the prepared cake and drizzle with additional caramel. Enjoy this dessert with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Recipe 4: Classic Honey Baklava

A Mediterranean marvel, baklava combines crispy phyllo pastry with a nutty filling, all soaked in a sweet honey syrup. This recipe honors the timeless tradition of baklava, cordially inviting you to discover the flavorful layers and textures that have captivated taste buds for centuries.


Here’s what you need for the baklava base:

  • 1 package of thawed phyllo dough
  • 2 cups of finely chopped walnuts or pistachios or both
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter

For the syrup (what makes baklava what it is), get these ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest


To prep the layers, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Butter a 9x13-inch baking pan. Mix the chopped nuts with cinnamon. Unroll phyllo dough and cover it with a dampened cloth to keep it from drying out.

Next, layer the phyllo by placing two sheets of phyllo in the pan and brushing generously with melted butter. Repeat until you have eight sheets layered. Next, sprinkle a bit of the nut mixture on top, and then top with two sheets of buttered phyllo. Repeat this sequence until you are about six to eight sheets deep, ending with phyllo.

Now, before baking, cut the baklava into diamonds or squares using a sharp knife. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the baklava is golden and crisp.

While the baklava bakes, make the sauce by placing water and sugar in a pan over medium heat and bringing it to a boil. Add the honey, vanilla, and lemon zest, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Then, wrap the dish up by removing the baklava from the oven and spooning the syrup over it immediately. Let it cool completely before serving. The baklava is even better when left to sit overnight.
