GINA’S HAIR-RAISING HONEY CAKE

We hope you can join us at 12 NOON ON FACEBOOK for a real-time cook-a-long. The idea is that all of us (you and us) will measure and prepare the ingredients and utensils listed below (before we start) and we will make the cake together, step by step, in real time. You will be able to make yours at exactly the same time as we do, and ask questions along the way.

You can print the list below, or go to our FB page, where you will find the list which you can download or print off. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE WE START

MEASURING HONEY:

We will measure the honey together – make sure you buy a jar/tub of honey larger than 500 g. It is very difficult to get 500 g honey out of a 500 g jar (but it is easier if it is glass).

MIS EN PLACE:
Getting everything ready before you start any recipe is a great idea.
Use small bowls, drinking glasses or coffee cups to put measured ingredients in.
Do not mix the ingredients yet.

 ELECTRIC MIXER:

This recipe is easily made with an electric hand held mixer or a stand mixer. If you have neither, a stick blender will work. You could also use a hand whisk and a silicone/rubber spatula.

CAKE TIN:

This makes 1 large honey cake and best in a large cake tin with a hole in the centre (like the large silicone one that we all use, pictured).

Preferable if it does not have a removable bottom as it is very liquid and may leak. 

If that is all you have (e.g. a non-stick angel cake tin), place 2 layers of foil around the outside bottom of the tin and bake it on a tray.

You could also bake it in 2 loaf tins, or 1 loaf tin and a muffin tin (then you can use baking paper to line, which we will discuss).

If you only have 1 loaf tin, we have given the quantities for a half batch of cake batter.

WHAT TO PREPARE BEFORE WE START:

TURN YOUR OVEN TO 180 C/355 F ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE YOU START WATCHING.

With apples currently in season and the weather cooling down, it's the perfect time to snuggle up with a comforting and nostalgic sweet treat from the old world. This GORGEOUS (I mean, just look at it!) Polish Apple Strudel from our third book - It's Always About the Food - is the perfect thing to whip up when you're in the mood for something delicious. The recipe comes from Sydney matriarch Fay Filler and, if you have the book, please do yourself a favour and go straight to page 268 to read her most special story.
