Spiced Honey Cake January 14, 2013

Spiced Honey Cake 3

With its warming flavour, this cake is delicious with or without the icing.

 

Ingredients

 

225g plain flour

1 level tsp baking powder

1 level tsp mixed spice

1 level tsp ground ginger

1 level tsp cinnamon

75g caster sugar

175g Orange Blossom Honey

75ml good olive oil

2 large eggs

finely grated zest of 1 orange

1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda

100ml orange juice, plus 1 Tbsp for the icing

50g icing sugar, sieved

 

Method

 

Line a 21cm square baking tin with parchment paper. Pre heat oven to 180C/gas 4.

Sift the flour, baking powder, mixed spice, ginger and cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir in the caster sugar.

In another bowl, beat the honey, oil, eggs and zest. Stir into the flour mixture.

Stir the bicorbonate of soda into the orange juice – it will start to fizz up. Immediately stir it into the cake mixture until evenly mixed. Pour into the prepared tin – its a very runny mixture but will firm up when cooked.

Bake for 55 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly pressed. Cool on a wire rack.

Mix the icing sugar with the extra orange juice, then drizzle on top of the cake.

Make yourself a cuppa and enjoy.:-)
