Heuningkoek ( South African Honey Cake)

Heuningkoek ( South African Honey Cake)

South African favorite I got from my mother-in-law

  • Yield: 16 servings
  • Prep time:17 Minutes
  • Cook time:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) self-rising flour
  • 1/3 cup(s) butter melted
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 pinch(s) salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup(s) milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) honey hot ( for sauce)
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter hot ( for sauce)

Preparation

BAKE CAKE

Do not use Bisquick. Best is to use 1 1/2 cup of regular flour and 2 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.

Mix first 6 ingredients together - the last two are needed for the sauce.

Put in oven-safe glass/pyrex dish in oven for 20 minutes at 350 F/180 C (until light brown)

PREPARE SAUCE

Prepare the sauce (.5 cup honey and .5 cup butter) in the mean time to almost boiling point - try to have it ready when cake is done.

ADD SAUCE AFTERWARDS

Quickly prick cake with fork to absorb the hot honey sauce and pour the souece evenly over the cake.

If able to resist let it cool down first.
