Ingredients

  • 100g salted butter , plus extra for the tin
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 100g runny honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 150g self-raising flour

For the glaze

  • 25g salted butter
  • 25g runny honey

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter and line a 900g loaf tin with baking parchment. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until creamy. Whisk in the honey, egg, milk, spices and a pinch of salt (don’t worry if it curdles slightly, it will become a loose batter), then fold in the flour.

  • STEP 2

    Tip into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 45 mins until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • STEP 3

    For the glaze, melt the butter and honey in a small pan until smooth. Leave to cool until thickened, then drizzle over the top of the cooled cake. Leave to set before serving.
