Honey Cake

Serves: 1 Cake for Sharing



  1. Preheat the oven to 140C (fan). Butter and line a 20cm round cake tin.

  2. In a pan gently heat the butter, sugar and Honey together. Melt slowly over a low heat until all have combined into a liquid. Leave to cool for 30 minutes.

  3. Beat the three eggs into the cooled liquid mixture.

  4. Sift the flour into a bowl, pour in the liquid honey mixture and mix till you have a smooth batter.

  5. Pour the mixture into your lined cake tin and cook for 1 hour or until the cake has risen to your satisfaction. Poke a skewer into the cake - the skewer should come out clean when the cake has finished cooking.

  6. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack and brush the extra honey onto the cake while still warm to give a lovely glaze.

  7. Leave to cool, eat and enjoy!
