Honey Cake

Honey Cake 1

The longest day has now passed and in celebration of the height of summer I have, as promised, baked a honey cake.

I have followed the WI Honey Cake recipe and it has turned out very well.

I made this with my son as it is so easy. It is just a case of melting one set of ingredients in a pan and then mixing them with the dry ingredients and a couple of eggs. It all then goes into the prepared tin, with a few flaked almonds on the top, and bakes in the oven.

The resulting cake is so moist and delicious. Serve with a drizzle of honey and a cup of tea. Perfect!

The 7th of July is World Chocolate Day!

Therefore, I suggest baking anything with a chocolate theme in July. This can be milk, white or dark chocolate.

Also Wimbledon starts on the 1st July, so why not make some dark chocolate dipped strawberries. As long as you stick to dark chocolate these are a more healthy option.

As it's my birthday in July I am going to combine both of the above ideas by making Mary Berry's Chocolate Birthday Cake decorated with chocolate dipped strawberries.

Enjoy whatever you make this summer and happy baking!
