Honey Cake recipe for the Esbat

I found this on this site: http://everything2.com/title/Welsh+honey+cakes I'm going to make them tomorrow when I get home from work.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • sugar
  • a little milk

Directions:

Sieve together the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda. Cream the butter and sugar in another bowl. Separate the egg and add the yolk to the butter/sugar mix (reserving the white). Add the honey gradually and mix thoroughly, then mix in the flour mixture with a little bit of milk so that the batter is stirrable but thick. Whisk the egg white into a stiff froth and fold it into the batter. Half fill muffin tins with the mix. Sprinkle a little sugar on the tops. Bake at 425ยบ F for 12-15 minutes, longer if needed to be cooked through.

Yield: 12 muffin-like cakes
