Serve up a delicious honey cake

Created for us by Victoria Prever, food editor at The Jewish Chronicle, this tasty honey cake idea is guaranteed to wow.

Makes 2 loaves (21cm x 11cm)

220g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
A large pinch of salt
1 tsp (heaped) ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
A large pinch all spice (optional)
125ml vegetable oil
85g honey
85g golden syrup
75g caster sugar
50g soft brown sugar (dark or light)
125ml freshly brewed coffee (or strong tea)
2 large eggs, beaten
80ml orange juice
A handful of flaked almonds, to decorate (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 160°C (fan) and line 2 loaf tins (21cm x 11cm).

2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.

3. In another bowl or large measuring jug, mix together the oil, honey, golden syrup, sugars and (warm but not boiling) coffee. Stir to dissolve the sugars and to combine everything, then stir in the beaten eggs and orange juice.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring with a whisk as you pour. Stop stirring as soon as they are combined – with no floury lumps – and then divide the mixture equally between the two lined tins. Sprinkle the top with almonds, if using.

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the cake springs back when gently pressed – the centre will firm up last, so press lightly on the edges. Make sure it is cooked through but be careful not to overbake or it will be dry.

6. Cool in the tins on a wire rack. Once fully cooled, remove from the tins and wrap well in baking parchment/foil and cling film, then store for 3 days or more. You can eat it on the day, but the flavours will be even better if you can wait.
