Frosted Honey Cake

Recipe By : Sainsbury's Website
Serving Size : 1
Categories : Sainsbury's

175 g butter, softened, or vegetable margarine,
-- plus extra for greasing (6oz)
175 g honey, (6oz)
175 g wholemeal flour, (6oz)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
3 eggs, beaten
125 g sultanas, (4oz)
250 g curd cheese, (8oz)
75 g honey, (3oz)
25 g walnut halves, (optional) (1oz)

Preheat the oven to 180 C, 350 F, Gas Mark 4 and grease two 18cm (7-inch)
diameter sponge tins. Cream the butter or margarine in a bowl. Beat in the
honey. Mix the flour with the bicarbonate of soda and beat it into the
creamed mixture alternately with the eggs. Fold in the sultanas and divide
the mixture between the prepared cake tins. Bake the cakes for 20 minutes
or until they are firm and have shrunk slightly from the sides of the
tins. Cool them in the tins for 5 minutes and then turn them on to wire
racks to cool. For the frosting, beat the curd cheese with the honey.
Sandwich the cakes together with half the mixture and spread the remaining
mixture on top. If you wish, decorate the cake with walnut halves.
