It makes pancakes yummier. It makes tea sweet. It makes sore throats easier and it makes oatmeal a treat. Honey has many uses - one of them is to make tasty food. To celebrate National Honey Month, we’ve found desserts inspired by fine art of honey-lover, Winnie the Pooh!
Here are six honey dessert recipes inspired by fine art of our favorite honey-loving bear:
"Out on a Limb” by Jim Salvati | Shop
Honey Passion Fruit Blueberry Cupcakes | Recipe
We love the blue sky paired with the gold tones of this Jim Salvati piece. The contrasting colors are pleasing to the eye so we assume the contrasting flavors of honey, passion fruit and blueberries in these adorable cupcakes would be even more pleasing to our taste buds.
"Good Morning Pooh” by Rodel Gonzalez | Shop
Honey Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles | Recipe
We didn’t think there could be anything more heavenly than this Rodel Gonzalez piece of Tigger and Pooh at sunrise until we saw these Honey Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles. Not only do they have gorgeous sunrise hues but we imagine they taste just as lovely as they look.
"Curious Bear” by Rob Kaz | Shop
Honey Basil Sorbet | Recipe
Rob Kaz’s choice of green undertones for his piece perfectly depicts the curious and somewhat greedy nature of Pooh when it comes to his honey. This Honey Basil Sorbet gives off the same vibes, leaving us curious and hungry for a scoop.
"Hundred Acre Wood” by Tricia Buchanan-Benson | Shop
Honey Lemon Bars | Recipe
Tricia Buchanan-Benson knows that a scrumptious snack is always better when you have friends to share it with. That’s why we love these Honey Lemon Bars that are the perfect dessert to pass around at a picnic.
"Waiting Out the Rain” by Rob Kaz | Shop
Honey Chai Pudding | Recipe
For long, rainy nights, a warm and creamy dessert is exactly what we need. The cinnamon, vanilla, and honey in this recipe perfectly compliment the cold tones of this Rob Kaz painting. With this Honey Chai Pudding, sitting alongside Pooh in the rain doesn’t sound half bad.
"Don’t Cry Over Spilt Hunny” by Trevor Carlton & Stephen Reis | Shop
Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler with Honey Whipped Cream | Recipe
The red notes, as well as the rambunctious, Tigger energy depicted by Trevor Carlton and Stephen Reis instantly, reminds us of a strawberry shortcake. This strawberry shortcake is even yummier than others though because it’s made with honey biscuits and honey whipped cream. Mmm…
