So far I'm 2 for 2 in my efforts to post a photo a day for November.

I baked a honey cake today.

Winnie the Pooh would have loved it.

Honey Cake

150 g butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup honey
1 2/3 cups flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
2 eggs, beaten
Line and grease a 8.5 in/22 cm spring-form tin. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, sugar, honey, and 1 tbsp water, stirring one or twice until the sugar is dissolved and the butter melted. Leave to cool for 10-15 mins. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

Sift flour, baking powder, and cinnamon into a bowl. Add the eggs, and the butter mixture. Mix until smooth. Pour into cake tin and bake 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick/knife comes out clean. Leave in tin to cool.

Lemon Icing

2 cups confectioners sugar
100 g softened butter
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp lemon juice
Sift sugar into a bowl. Add butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1 tbsp water and beat until smooth.

Was today a long ass day...or what?
