honey cake disaster
Yesterday I made a honeycake from a recipe I've made several times before. But while baking it boiled up, overflowed the cake tin and ended up like a giant brandy snap. Luckily I had stood the cake tin inside a larger flat tin.
Here's the recipe:
Mix together 200g flour, 150g sugar,spice, ginger.
Mix 250g honey, 4fl oz oil, 2 eggs. Add fluids to dry ingredients and beat well. It's a very runny batter.
Dissolve a teasp. of baking soda in a little orange juice and add to the mixture.
Pour into tin and bake in a very low oven for about 1hr 15mins.
I wonder what I did wrong? I MIGHT have put in too much soda, and it was an extremely hot day (42°) so that could have affected it?
Don't know whether to try the same again or a different recipe.
Hoping someone can advise Pat.
