Dutch Honey Cake

Dutch Honey Cake

This cake was a staple when visited Grandma de Groot. A very simple cake, best eaten when cool, sliced and spread with butter.


  • 12 oz of Self Raising Flour
  • 4 oz castor sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon powder (Dutch)
  • 1 teaspoon ground Nutmeg (or Mace)
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cloves
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 5 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of butter


Pre-heat your oven to 175ºC (350ºF).

In a microwave proof dish, place the honey and butter, and gently warm enough to melt the butter. (Alternatively do in a saucepan on the stove).

Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly in a large mixing bowl.

Add the honey butter mix, and the milk and whisk well until combined.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 1 hour at 175ºC  (350ºF).

Tip out and cool on a rack before serving.
