Are your cakes always sad in the middle? Do you despair of making a good cake that rises? Well fear not, this cake is supposed to be sad in the middle and it never rises that much either! On the other hand it does taste delicious whether hot or cold!
You will need:
Oven 180 C, 350 F or gas mark 4
4 oz butter
3 oz golden or soft brown sugar
5 oz Self Raising Flour
A few drops of Vanilla essence
Approx two or three tablespoons of runny honey.
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, add the vanilla essence and then the eggs and one spoonful of flour with each egg. Fold in the flour and the honey until well mixed and put the mixture into a greased 1lb loaf tin and bake for 35-40 mins until firm. Allow to cool on a wire rack and enjoy a small piece whilst slightly warm with a cup of strong Ceylon tea to counterbalance the sweet.
