Witchy Spice Cakes

 

  • 1 cup of butter
  • ¾ cups of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of honey
  • ½ cup of anise and licorice tea (instructions below)
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut extract
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoons cloves
  • ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 4 eggs, beaten

 

The herbs in this recipe include anise (for clairvoyance), licorice root (for expelling negative energy), cloves (for psychic protection), and cinnamon (for psychic development).

 

This recipe makes about 12 cupcake-sized cakes. I like to carry these as a snack --- the herbal scent reminds me of kitchen witchery and can bring a little magick into my mundane life. I hope you enjoy them!

 

1.     Boil ½ cup of water. Add three anise stars and 2 tablespoons of licorice root. Make a tea and then strain out the licorice and anise.

2.     Preheat oven to 360 F and grease the muffin tins with butter. Place the rest of the butter, along with the sugar, honey, anise/licorice tea, hazelnut extract, and vanilla extract, into a saucepan. Heat gently (not allowing it to boil), stirring only once, until the butter is melted and the sugar dissolved. Let it cool to room temperature.

3.     In a large bowl, mix the baking powder, cloves, and cinnamon together.

4.     When the honey mixture is cool, stir in the beaten eggs. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth.

5.     Fill a muffin tin with all of the batter. Each cup should be 2/3 full. Bake for 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Yay, Hawkwind!  :hearts2:

 

Horne --- these actually turned out very non-sweet. They have just a slight sweetness and taste more like muffins. :smile:

My stomach has a terrible aversion to cinnamon (which is odd considering all the other spices I do fine with) but it sounds good!  Reminds me of a chai recipe I have tried in the past lol

This sounds like it could be yummy even though it contains licorice root and cloves (my tastebuds violently disagree with both but I have made spice cookies that were pretty delish), but those flavors arent so bad combined with orange. If I try this out I may add some orange peel or some orange juice to the batter to balance that out for myself, unless they arent overpowering to begin. Hawkwind let me know also !

Hi RoseRed, I'm sure you could easily replace the licorice tea. You could pick a different spice/herb that you like and make the tea from that instead. The important thing is that you use the same amount of liquid. The taste of licorice isn't very strong, but if you don't like it at all, you can definitely replace it. In fact, you could likely replace any of the spices as long as a different one was included in its place. :)

Oh wow! Looks like a great recipe to try. With being Dutch I think liquorice is in our DNA..so will definitely have a go at this. Thank you:)
