Honey Loaf


300g Plain Flour

2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 tsp. Salt

100g Butter, softened

175g Runny Honey

2 Eggs, beaten

75ml Milk

1 Tbs. Warm Honey, for brushing


Preheat oven to 170 degrees.

Cream the butter until light and fluffy, then add the honey and beat until well combined.

Add eggs one at a time and mix well.

Stir in flour, baking powder and salt and stir to combine (with a spatula or wooden spoon, not your mixer).

Stir the milk in gradually to form a soft, sloppy dough.

Spoon into a greased loaf pan (I used a round cake tin and lined it with baking paper) and bake for 45-55 minutes until lightly golden on top.

Heat your honey in a microwave safe cup for 20-30 seconds until hot, then brush over your loaf.

Be sure to enjoy a slice while you pack lunch boxes.
