The end of summer holidays are always bittersweet, you don't really want them to end. For a couple of weeks, I can forget about studies and focus on doing all of the things that I enjoy. Cramming in lots of tv, catching up with home friends and sneaking in a holiday are just some of things that I got up to this summer. I squeezed in quite a bit of cooking too. Often I would cook alone or me and mum would prepare meals together. If there is a single reason that my mum is going to miss me now that I am back at uni, it's because of this. To round off my cooking for the summer, I made an Eggless Honey Cake.

It was my little brothers birthday a couple of days ago and I wanted to bake a cake for him. I'm still new to baking so I wanted to tackle something at my level!

Me and my brother have both grown up with cakes in every variety. The best thing about school was the pudding in school dinners. I don't think I will ever forget the excitement when seeing butterscotch tart on the menu - still lovingly mentioned by my friends.  But there was another contender, the humble jam sponge, and custard. I thought I'd give this cake a go. It isn't classically a birthday cake but a reminiscent of our times at school! A variation of the jam sponge is the honey cake, in which the sponge is soaked in a honey and sugar syrup.

The cake was fairly simple to prepare and bake and turned out really well! The house was cocooned with the warm sweet smell of the cake, which was moist from the honey and you could distinctly taste the flavour from the orange juice. My favourite part was the jam and coconut on the top! Most importantly though, my brother really enjoyed it and had a wonderful birthday. I can only hope to be spoilt the same way when my birthday comes along!!

Notes:-
If you can not find orange juice with bits then use 1 Tbsp. orange zest and plain orange juice.
