Ingredients

Serves: 12

225g unsalted butter

250g clear honey (plus a little extra to glaze)

100g dark muscovado sugar

3 large eggs, beaten

300g self raising flour

 

Method

Prep:10 min

Cook:1 hr

Extra time:20 min cooling

Ready in:1 hr 30 min

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C / 140°C Fan / Gas 3. Grease and line a 20cm round cake tin.
  • Cut the butter into pieces and drop into a saucepan with the honey and sugar. Melt slowly over a low heat. When the mixture is completely liquid increase the heat under the pan and allow to boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 20 minutes (the cooling is a must!).
  • Beat the eggs into the cooled melted honey mixture using a wooden spoon.
  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and pour in both the beaten eggs and the honey mixture. Continue to beat with the wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and runny.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the pre-lined tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the cake is well-risen and golden brown. A skewer inserted into the centre of the cake should come out clean.
  • Brush a little honey over the cake to glaze and leave the cake to cool in its tin. Once cool, turn out and serve.
