Yummy honey!

Ive being dying to try out this yummy honey cake recipe for a while now, it was in a recipe book that I bought for my Dad for Christmas. I meant to copy the recipe down before I gave it to him.....but didn't!! So I waited patiently until he opened it and promptly grabbed it back to have the recipe!!!

It was so easy, virtually no mixing, just adding the ingredients until it looks like a batter.

And just look how it turned out

I managed to take a quick pic before everyone round here got their mitts onto it!!!

Here's the recipe:


175g Clear honey

150g Butter

80g Light muscavado sugar

2 Eggs (beaten)

200g Self raising flour (sifted)


55g Icing sugar (sifted)

1tbs Honey

Pre-heat oven to 180c, Butter an 18cm/7in cake tin and line with grease-proof paper

Put honey, butter & sugar into a pan with 1tbs water & heat gently until melted

Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl, mix in eggs and flour

Spoon into the cake tin and bake for 40-45 mins until springy, cool and turn out

While the cake is still warm, make icing by mixing icing sugar, honey & 2/3 tsp hot water

Spoon over cake

This has to be the moistest cake I ever had! It was delicious!

Looks yummy Michelle! Is muscavado sugar like regular granulated cane sugar? I've never heard of it before. Maybe I will try out the recipe this weekend, it won't last more than an hour in my house(the kids see cake and it's gone!).

Oh, wow this does look delicious! My folks just gave me some Mesquite honey they got when they visited the desert in the Southwest, U.S. It's really dark and mellow tasting, without the usual tang of the orange blossom honey. Now, I know what to use it for! Thanks Michelle.

I'm curious about "muscavado", as well. Is it a brown sugar?

Hi, I just noticed the radio you have in the photo! My mum and dad used to have one that they had had for years.. I think we still have it somewhere although I am not sure where, what a blast from the past.......... See you again soon
