Honey lovers will love this cake which has honey in it and glazed over it. I even put a little honey in my tea when eating this.


Serves: 12 

  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 250g clear honey, with a little extra to glaze
  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups (310g) self raising flour

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Extra time:1hour15min  ›  Ready in:2hours30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Butter and line a 20cm cake tin.
  2. Slowly melt the butter in a medium saucepan with the honey and sugar. When liquid allow to boil for about 1 minute. Leave to cool; the mixture needs to be cool enough not to cook eggs.
  3. Beat the eggs into the cooled honey mixture with a wooden spoon. Sift the flour into a large bowl and poor in the egg and honey mixture beating until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until the cake is well risen, golden brown and springs back when pressed.
  5. Turn the cake out onto a cake rack. Warm the extra honey in a small saucepan and brush over the top of the cake to glaze. Leave to cool.

Muscovado Sugar

Muscovado sugar can be found in some supermarkets and at gourmet food shops. You can substitute with brown sugar if desired.
