Manuka Honey Cake

Manuka Honey Cake


170g/6oz Manuka honey

140g/5oz butter

85g/3oz light muscovado sugar

2 eggs, beaten

200g/7oz self raising flour, sieved


For the icing:

55g/2oz icing sugar

1 tbsp Manuka honey

Hot water



Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 3 and butter and line the bottom of a 7in/18cm cake tin.

Measure the manuka honey, butter and sugar into a large pan.

Add a tablespoon of water and heat gently until melted.

Remove from the heat and mix in the eggs and flour.

Spoon into the cake tin and bake for 40-45 minutes until the cake is springy to the touch and shrinking slightly from the sides of the tin.

Cool slightly in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack.

While the cake is still warm, make the icing by mixing the sugar and honey together with 2-3 teaspoons of hot water.

Trickle over the cake in whatever design takes your fancy.
