Recipe for a simple and tasty honey cake

Scroll down for the recipe for my simple and tasty honey cake.

Honey Cake

Years ago I used to have a cafe on the weekends at a local environmental centre. I would make all of my cakes, jams, chutneys and more during the week. One winner was my Honey Cake.

i hadn’t made this cake for quite a few years now however I had loads of honey in the cupboard and needed something special. I thought to serve it with a light sauce of cream cheese, icing sugar and honey whipped together. Perfect for any afternoon tea platter. Divine with a cup of tea.

I was going to interview The a High Commissioner for Barbados in the UK and wanted to take him a cake. Since this recipe called for Caribbean spices I decided it was perfect!

If you make this recipe please let me know in the comments below how it came out.
