WW2 Recipe

Year 3 had a lovely time this morning testing a WW2 recipe for Honey Cakes. Here is the recipe in case you would like to try this at home.

Honey Cakes

1 teaspoon sugar
21/2 ounces margarine
2 teaspoons honey
6oz self raising flour
1 level teaspoon cinnamon#

Beat sugar and margarine until a soft cream consistency.
Sieve flour and cinnamon then add to mixture. Add the honey to the mixture and mix together.
Mix with a wooden spoon until it binds together, then knead with your fingers until you have a soft dough.
Break off a piece of the dough and roll it between your floured palms into a ball.
Place on to a lightly greased baking tray.
Flatten slightly.
Repeat until you have used up all the dough, when you should have about sixteen delicious honey cakes.┬áBake in a moderately hot oven until the cakes are done – about 15 mins.
