Last week was ‘National Honey’ week. A joyous celebration of all things sweet and made by British bees. I am lucky enough to a have a little apiary at the bottom of our garden, supplying our honey needs throughout the year.

This is a lovely autumnal cake, you can add a touch of spice to transform it into a festive bake.
