How to make a honey cake recipe

Place honey, margarine, light brown sugar and condensed milk into a mixing bowl.

To measure the honey and condensed milk:

Take a tablespoon in one hand and use the other hand to dip a teaspoon into the honey. Let the honey slip and drizzle from off the teaspoon into the tablespoon until the tablespoon is full and level.

Do this method for both the honey and condensed milk for perfect measurements.

Briefly stir together with a spoon then whisk.

Add all of the dry ingredients and two eggs.

Mix well.

Pour into a greased and floured 7+1/2 or 8 inch round cake tin.

Bake in a hot oven at gas mark 5 for 25 minutes, do not open the oven door during the first stage of cooking.

Turn the oven down to gas mark 3 and bake for a further 20-30 minutes.

Leave the honey cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Once cool carefully use a bread knife to slice the cake in half.

Spread with fresh cream or other filling of your choice.

Place the lid of the honey cake on top of the cream filling and dust with powdered sugar.

Gently cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge until desired.

The cake keeps very well in the fridge and tastes fabulous the next day.

This cake will keep in the fridge for as long as the cream filling does.

Enjoy this delicious honey cake recipe.
