115g dark or light brown sugar

200g honey

1 tbsp milk

2 free range eggs

Put butter, sugar, honey and milk in a pan and stir over low heat until melted.  Leave to cool slightly then beat the eggs into mixture one at a time, add the flour and stir well until completely mixed. 


Pour the mixture into lined rectangular tin 11” x 7”.  Bake for 30 - 40 mins until well risen and mixture has shrunk back from sides of tin gas 4, 180°C. Once cooked you can glaze with warm honey and top with almonds if you are using them.  Leave to cool and remove paper - cut into yummy pieces!  This cakes keeps really well too - although not for long in my house!
