About this recipe:Simple sponge cake with a lovely honey flavour, no milk or butter, and virtually fat free (if you omit the optional oil). You could try making a simple icing to drizzle over the cake once it is cooled. A mixture of honey, icing sugar and a touch of soya milk would do the trick!

Method Prep:10min › Cook:30min › Ready in:40min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Separate egg yolks and whites.
Add sugar and honey to yolks and beat well.
Gradually mix in flour to honey mixture, by the spoonful.
Add a pinch of salt to egg whites and whisk until stiff.
Gently mix egg whites into the yolk-flour mixture. This is quite stiff to start with, so add it bit by bit, you can then start mixing more lightly when the first few spoonfuls of egg have been incorporated.
Turn into greased loaf tin, or even better into a silicone tin.
Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven (not fan assisted if possible).
