Fiji - Fijian Honey Cake

Fiji is an island country in the South Pacific. It's made up of over 330 islands. In October they celebrate their independence in a week of festivals called Fiji Week. This cake is a popular dessert in Fiji.


1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream (not pictured oops!)
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Nice easy recipe this one! Put everything in a bowl except the almonds.

Mix everything together well.

Pour into a greased loaf tin and sprinkle the almonds on top.

 Bake at 175C for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

We ate our honey cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and while it was nice it was very different from any other cake I've had. The outside was very cake-like but inside it had a layer that was squidgy and all the honey had settled there. It was almost like the bottom of a treacle sponge in texture but flavoured with honey obviously. I'm not sure if Fijian Honey Cake is usually like that but mine was! Overall it was nice but very dense and filling.
