2 colonies now! and some spare parts.
I have saved the recipe and will make it as soon as my girls give me some honey!
I have a small walnut tree growing in my garden so hopefully the walnuts will be no problem. My friend has chickens so good yellow eggs for me.

This recipe will win the first prize at the Reigate Beekeepers' Honey Fair on 02 October 2010.
I have this information on the very best authority.

4 ozs Butter or Margarine 2 Eggs
8 oz Honey 4 oz Sultanas
8 oz S.R. Flour 4 oz Currants
3 Tbspns Milk 2 oz Mixed Peel
A pinch of Salt A pinch of Nutmeg
Method 1 Cream Butter / Marg and Honey
2 Sift Flour, Salt and Nutmeg together
3 Beat Eggs and add to the creamed mixture alternately with flour.
4 Add rest of ingredients and beat lightly, adding milk if needed to form a
soft dropping consistency.
5 Bake in a greased 7” tin on the middle shelf at 150 C for 1 ¼ – 1½ hours​

Like most honey shows, the cake recipe is normally prescribed to reduce latitude and level the playing fleld for the judge.

However good, the first prize goes for the winning cake, and not the winning recipe.

I just thought that I might share that point with some of you, least you get carried away with it all. :)

I'm sure your recipe is absolutely wonderful none-the-less. Perhaps Agrucultural shows are different . . .
