Honey Cake


Honey Cake

Serves 12 or so?

This lovely cake is very tasty, quick and simple to make, and light but moist.
It was an accidental invention – the first time I made it, I was trying to make biscuits!


  1. 11/2 cups plain flour
  2. 1 cup almond meal or “LSA” or almonds ground up in a food processor
  3. 1 cup castor sugar
  4. 11/2 tsp baking powder
  5. 250g butter, softened
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 1/2 cup honey
  8. 75 mL milk
  9. 300ml whipping cream


  1. Mix the dry ingredients (A-D) in a bowl,
  2. Add everything else except the cream (E-H) and mix well.
  3. Line shallow baking trays with baking paper and spread the mixture out thinly.
    The recipe covers 2-3 trays.
  4. Bake at 180 degrees (170 degrees for fan-forced) for 10-15 minutes, until the edges brown slightly.
  5. Cool the layers completely, and cut into even-sized sheets.
  6. Whip the cream (I) to stiff peaks.
  7. Build the cake in layers, spreading cream between each layer.
    It might be easier to make several smaller cakes.

Serve with a hot or cold refreshing drink.
