Honey Spice Loaf
90 grams butter
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 180 deg.C
Grease and line a loaf tin
Melt butter and honey together in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Stirring until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
Stir in flours, sugar, soda, spices then add milk and egg. Stir until well combined.
Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake for 35 minutes.
Stand to cool for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a rack or plate. Let it cool or enjoy warm.
I use honey but golden syrup or the like could easily take its place.
This cake lasts next to no time here. I made one this afternoon and I don't think it will make it to tomorrow's school lunchbox.
The weekly meal plan this week. I'm taking into account that we are having some warm weather and eating light. I'm glad to say that I have plenty in the garden now unlike the beginning of last month. I have one large pumpkin left from last summer so it needs using very soon (now).
This week in no particular order we will be having:
- potato and warrigal greens with fenugreek and dahl on the side
- risotto- either mushroom or honey-baked pumpkin
- brown rice salad with braised celery
- roasted pumpkin and onion tart
- cauliflower and broccoli quiche
- eggs some way on Sunday
Edited to add: I'm linking up with Cath@home for her weekly What's for dinner post.
Better get cooking.
