Ingredients
Method
 
  • 2/3 cups dark honey
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup cream or milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp anise seed, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp coriander ground
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom ground
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch cloves
  • pinch salt
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • 1 x egg, lightly beaten
Great addition to the Christmas table or to slice up and gift up nicely Put the honey, sugar, milk, and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Sift the dry ingredients and stir in the zest. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Put the egg in the well, and whisk in the honey and milk mixture, gradually drawing in the dry ingredients to make a batter. Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake at 350°F/175°C until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, 50 minutes. Cool. Wrap in plastic, and store a few days before serving (the few days of sitting gives the honey flavour time to mature, and the cake tastes even better).
