What you need ...

For the cake

2 tablespoons of Honey Heaven UK ginger honey

1 large egg

150g self-raising flower

100g salted butter

100g sugar (our preference is golden caster sugar)

1 tablespoon of mixed spice

½ table spoon of ground ginger  

For the icing 

60g icing sugar

1 tablespoon of  Honey Heaven UK Organic Natural Hungarian Acacia Honey

Splash of milk to mix the icing 



Before you start, heat your oven to 180c/160c or gas mark 4.

Step 1

Step 2

While whisking, add two tablespoons of Honey Heaven UK ginger honey , egg, milk, ground ginger, mixed spices and then fold in the flour. 


Step 3

Either butter the baking tin or use a case to line it, then pour the cake mixture into the tin. 

Step 4

Place into the oven for around 45mins checking to ensure the cake is cooked before you remove it. This can be done by inserting a knife or skewer into the cake's centre and ensuring it comes out clean.

Step 5

Wait for the cake to cool, then mix the icing sugar and honey and add splashes of milk until the icing is at the consistency you want.

Once we have iced we also dribble some of our gorgeous Organic Natural Hungarian Acacia over the cake.
