Updated: Jan 04, 2012, 09:07 AM IST

Honey Gingerbread is a simple and easy to prepare honey cake.


500g smooth flour
125g butter
190g powdered sugar
1 tablespoon honey
3 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 clove

You may need some molds to shape the cakes.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl except one egg and mix until a smooth dough is obtained.

Put the last egg in a cup or small bowl and mix it.

Divide the dough into five or six portions. Take one portion and roll it flat, about 3mm thick. Molds are useful for shaping - cut some nice forms and put them on a baking tin.

When the tin is full, take the mixed egg and glaze top of every cake.

Bake at 180°C for a few minutes, until the cakes have a light brown colour.

Repeat with other dough portions.
