Adapted from a traditional recipe. N.B. I've seen people recommend the use of corn syrup as a substitute for golden syrup, and the textures are similar. However, the tastes are very different, so get hold of golden syrup if you can.

Recipe Ingredients for Honeycake

100 g honey
100 g golden syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar (muscovado makes a more treacly cake; demarera is good if you like it lighter)
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp crystallized ginger (optional)
3/4 cup water, boiling
1 large egg, beaten
7 oz self raising flour

Recipe Directions for Honeycake

  1. Mix together all but the last three ingredients, adding the water last.

  2. Slowly add the egg, beating the mixture while adding.

  3. Seive in the flour and bicarb (and cocoa, if using). Beat in, incorporating as much air as possible, until you have a smooth, loose batter.

  4. Pour into a greased loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees C for one hour.
