Spice Bread

Ingredients

  • 150 ml dark honey

  • 50 g dark brown sugar

  • 250 ml Cream or milk

  • 110 g Butter

  • 250 g Flour

  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon Ginger

  • 0.5 teaspoon crushed anise seeds

  • 0.25 teaspoon Coriander

  • 0.25 teaspoon Cardamom

  • 1 Pinch of Nutmeg

  • 1 Pinch of Clove

  • 1 Pinch of Salt

  • 1 grated Orange Zest or lemon zest or a tablespoon of candied orange zest

  • 1 Egg lightly beaten

Method

  • 1.

    Put the honey, sugar, milk, and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

  • 2.

    Sift the dry ingredients and stir in the zest.

  • 3.

    Make a well in the dry ingredients.

  • 4.

    Put the egg in the well, and whisk in the honey and milk mixture, gradually drawing in the dry ingredients to make a batter.

  • 5.

    Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake at 350°F/175°C until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

  • 6.

    Cool.

  • 7.

    Wrap in plastic, and store a few days before serving. (The few days of sitting gives the honey flavour time to mature, and the cake tastes even better.)
