Beltane: Honey Ginger Cake

Today it is officially Beltane. We already celebrated it last Sunday but today I am still spending a bit of time on it, like cooking something that nice for dinner that fits the Beltane theme. We are making Strawberry Risotto tonight! This recipe has been on the blog for a while already, and it is one of my favorite summery risottos. But today I am going to share the recipe for a Honey Ginger Cake. The spice mix used is a typical Dutch mix but just use whatever mix you would use for your gingerbread instead :) I am actually not too fond of honey myself, but in this recipe it turned out really great! It gives the cake richness, but it is a very sticky cake ;) 

Honey Ginger Cake
- 300 gr selfrising flour
- 150 gr brown caster sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp Dutch cake mix (or gingerbread mix)
- 200 ml buttermilk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 150 gr honey

First stir the dry ingredients together. Then add the wet ingredients and stir through. Do not mix this batter! Line a baking sheet in a cake tray and pour the batter in. Bake in a pre heated oven on 160 degrees for about 60-70 minutes.
