This delicious recipe comes from one of Etta's favourite books, 'Omar, The Bees, and Me' by Helen Mortimer.
It's a simple yet absolutely delicious recipe, perfect with a cuppa.
What better way to salute our little friends, the bees, on national bee day?!
- 250g plain flour
- 4 eggs
- 150g sugar
- 100g runny honey
- 250g butter, softened
- 1 tsp baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- Pre-heat your oven to 160 fan/gas mark 3 and grease your cake tin (we like to make this in a bundt tin, but it's lovely as a loaf too.)
- In a large bowl, beat the butter until it is creamy and then add the sugar until creamed.
- Add the honey, salt, baking powder, flour and eggs, mixing well after each ingredient.
- Pour the mixture into your cake tin and then pop it in the oven for 45 minutes until the cake is golden on top, or a skewer comes out clean.
- After about 20 minutes, transfer the cake to a wire cooling rack. Don't try to remove the cake from it's tin while it's too warm or it'll just fall apart (trust me...)
- Decorate with a dusting of icing sugar and edible flowers, or a drizzle of honey
