Hoffie CakeSubmitted by Karen

A simple cake recipe. Ingredients can easily be doubled/tripled depending on your cake tin and family size.

Ingredients for Hoffie Cake:

  • 150g self raising flour
  • 150g sugar – half demerara works well
  • 150g butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 2tsp honey
  • 1tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1tsp crystallised ginger

Method for Hoffie Cake:

  1. Cream together the butter/margarine and sugar;
  2. Mix in the egg and sieve in the flour;
  3. Bake the cake at 180 until a pick comes out clean;
  4. Pour 2 teaspoons of honey over the top when still warm sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
  5. Put a few crystallised ginger on the top if you have some on it.

It really does not matter if it sinks a bit; in a way this is good as it tastes much nicer slightly under cooked. Eat with cream or ice cream or just as it comes.
