“I came up with this out of a desire to bake something a little bit different to the cakes I'm accustomed to. The honey gives the cake a fantastic flavour, and smells divine as it bakes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Grease and flour a 23 cm round pan.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the honey and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat well to combine.
  4. Add half the flour and mix well.
  5. Add the milk, mixing thoroughly, followed by the remaining flour. Mix until smooth.
  6. Place in the prepared pan and bake 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 160 degrees and bake until golden brown. The sides of the cake will pull away from the pan when ready. If the cake browns too much before the sides pull away, reduce the temperature to 150 and continue baking.
  7. Serve with honey frosting or whipped cream.
