Honey Cake

This light textured as spongy honey cake recipe is from Pooh's Yummy Cookbook.

It is a simple recipe using 5 ingredients.
Well, 6 if you include some butter to grease the cake tin.

3 eggs
80 gm sugar ( I used caster sugar)
90 gm self raising flour
6 teaspoons of honey 
1 pinch of salt 

Prepare 2 mixing bowls
Separate the egg yolks from the whites into the bowls.
Add the sugar and honey into the yolks n use an electric beater n beat well 
Mix in the flour spoon by spoon - I beat in with the electric mixer

Wash clean your beaters n dry them
Add a pinch of salt into the egg whites and whisk until stiff
Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture
Preheat the oven to 180 deg celcius ( I used 170)
Grease a loaf tin or a round tin 
Pour into the cake tin and bake for 30 minutes 
I tented the cake with aluminum foil halfway at 15 minutes.
Remove and cook on wire rack.
Cut into 1 inch thickness n serve
