6oz runny honey

3oz brown sugar
2 eggs
7oz self-raising flour
For the icing
2oz icing sugar
1 tablespoon runny honey

Melt honey, butter and sugar in pan.
Remove from heat and add 1 tablespoon water.
Mix in beaten eggs and sifted flour.
Pour into tin and bake for 40-50mins – until springy to touch.
Meanwhile make the icing, adding a little hot water so that it runs off a spoon.
Cool cake for a few minutes.
Prick all over with a fine skewer or cocktail stick.
Slowly pour over the glaze – moving it to cover the  whole cake with the back of a spoon.
Leave to cool.
