  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line the bottom and sides of an 81/2 × 41/2 × 21/2in (21 × 11 × 6cm) loaf pan with parchment paper. Sift the flour, spices, and baking soda into a bowl. Heat the honey, butter, and brown sugar in a pan until melted and smooth. Mix into the flour, then stir in the egg and milk until the mixture is well blended. The batter will be runny.
  2. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until risen and firm to the touch. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool. To serve, unmold the cake and cut into slices.
  • Use a flavored honey, or substitute Lyle's Golden Syrup.
  • The cake can be stored for up to 1 week in an airtight container-the flavor will mature and the texture will become pleasantly, deliciously sticky.
