Dairy Free Manuka Honey Bread

Manuka Honey Bread

A sweet, soft, wonderfully moreish tea bread.


Makes 1 small loaf:

225g plain flour

115g caster sugar

115g Manuka honey

150ml hot water

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Zest of 1 lemon



Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/gas mark 3.

Butter a 450g loaf tin and line it with baking paper.

Mix the flour and sugar together in a large bowl.

Melt the manuka honey and water in a small pan.

Sprinkle the bicarbonate of soda over the water mixture and stir.

Pour this over the dry ingredients, add the lemon zest and mix just until incorporated.

Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 50–60 minutes.

Remove from the tin and brush the top of the warm bread with manuka honey for a nice sticky finish.

Cool, then serve thinly sliced.
