My Winnie the Pooh Honey cake

I love Disney, for most people who know me that will not come as a surprise. I also love food, again no surprises there! So when I can combine those two things then its a no brainer for me. 

With this month being Valentine's day, what better time to combine those two loves into something sweet to share! This recipe is, of course, inspired by the adorable Winnie The Pooh- I love the Winnie the Pooh story from the books to the old series and now the new film adaptations- so what else could I do as my first 'Disney' inspired food than a Winnie the Pooh classic; honey, and more specifically a honey cake. 


175g unsalted butter
75g light brown muscovado sugar
140g honey 
2 eggs- separated into yolk and whites
225g self-raising flour
zest of half a lemon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • Mix together the yolks and sugar in a large mixing bowl, when fully combined add in your softened butter making sure to get out all of the lumps
  • Add in the honey, zest and the spices 
  • Sieve in the flour and mix well 
  • Mix in the whites, it will feel like the mix won't combine.. just keep going!
  • Spoon into medium size muffin tins 
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until browned. If you can't tell then use a sharp knife in the middle of the muffin and if it comes out clean they're done. 
Serve warm with a drizzle of honey on top to glaze

“‘When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,’ said Piglet at last, ‘What’s the first thing you say to yourself?’
‘What’s for breakfast?’ said Pooh. ‘What do you say, Piglet?’
‘I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?’ said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. ‘It’s the same thing,’ he said.”
