Honey Cake

This recipe was in this past week's edition of one of my local papers. It sounded really good, so I figured I would share it on here.

Honey Cake
3/4 cup butter
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
Tres Leches Soak
3 ounces evaporated milk
3 1/2 ounces sweetened condensed milk
3 ounces whole milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, orange juice and honey. Scrape sides of bowl while mixing.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix dry ingredients into main mixture in parts, alternating with sour cream. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper. Pour batter into pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool. Carefully turn cake out of the pan. Peel of parchment paper and return cake to the pan. Poke holes in the cake. Mix together the three milks and vanilla. Pour about one-third of the mixture over the cake. Allow to soak into the cake. Repeat until all the liquid is used.
