Easy dairy-free honey cake

    40 min

    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!

    Makes: 10 small slices

    • 3 eggs
    • 75g sugar
    • 3 tablespoons honey
    • 90g self raising flour
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 teaspoon oil

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Separate egg yolks and whites.
    3. Add sugar and honey to yolks and beat well.
    4. Gradually mix in flour to honey mixture, by the spoonful.
    5. Add a pinch of salt to egg whites and whisk until stiff.
    6. 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.
    7. Turn into greased loaf tin, or even better into a silicone tin.
    8. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven (not fan assisted if possible).

    fantastic recipe. Only one change - I bake for 22 mins instead of 30, otherwise it burns and is a bit dry! Great for avoiding butter calories...  -  27 Jul 2012
