About this recipe: This is a sweet lemony syrup for pouring over cakes, which is typical of Greek cuisine. You can also use this as an alternative to maple syrup on pancakes, or to drizzle over ice cream. It's very sweet so a little goes a long way!


Serves: 12 

  • 350g (12 oz) honey
  • 100ml (4 fl oz) water
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the honey, water, lemon juice and zest. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until boiling. Continue to boil until the mixture is reduced by a quarter.


If you're using this for a cake, pour hot syrup over cooled cake and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving. Alternatively, pour cooled syrup over the hot cake straight out of the oven.
