This is a super soft and moist cake , with the rich flavour of honey. Honey and coffee , also give it a deep golden colour. I quite often bake it and refrigerate it, which enhances its flavour and can then be served at room temperature. I have also tried to steam , tea cakes, before serving and they turn out really warm and moist so go ahead and refrigerate it to serve warm when required.

  • 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
