Our recipe employs a lot of the same ingredients that come up in lists of home remedies for the cold and flu. More importantly, it tastes a lot better than a spoonful of cough syrup.
When you get tired of trying to fight your cold with tissues and steam baths, a slice of cake might actually be just what the doctor ordered!
This tasty recipe features powerful flu-fighting ingredients like cinnamon, ginger, honey, and lemon. All of these ingredients work together to give the body much-need vitamins and fight irritating symptoms like a stuffy nose and scratchy throat.
