Honey Hokey Pokey

hokey-pokey-5630eabf882b7 (1)

Hokey pokey is a Cornish term for honeycomb. It is wonderful eaten in golden shards or crumbled into the best vanilla ice cream. It is also the perfect present to take to a dinner party. Better than flowers, as they need to be put into a vase, better than chocolate, which people tend to smile politely at, but put away in a drawer: no one can resist a bit of hokey pokey I’ve found.

The quantities I’ve specified don’t make an awful lot – enough to fill a little tin 12cm in diameter by 6cm deep – but any more and you’d be sued by your dentist.

INGREDIENTS
Makes: 125g / 2 cups

METRICCUPS
• 100 grams caster sugar
• 4 tablespoons golden syrup
• 1½ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda

METHOD
1. Put the sugar and syrup into a saucepan and stir together to mix. You mustn’t stir once the pan’s on the heat, though.
2. Place the pan on the heat and let the mixture first melt, then turn to goo and then to a bubbling mass the colour of maple syrup – this will take 3 minutes or so.
3. Off the heat, whisk in the bicarbonate of soda and watch the syrup turn into a whooshing cloud of aerated pale gold. Turn this immediately onto a piece of reusable baking parchment or greased foil.
4. Leave until set and then bash at it, so that it splinters into many glinting pieces.

Christmas Cake – Fig and Honey

This week we’re going to show you how our deliciously dark UTMT Wild Forest Honey can be used perfectly to create a rich Christmas cake!

You will need:

750g mixed dried fruit
100g blanched whole almond, roughly chopped
100g chopped peel
200g dried fig, roughly chopped
100g glacé cherry, well rinsed and quartered
300g plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp grated nutmeg
zest 1 lemon
250g lightly salted butter
250g light sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp UTMT Wild Forest honey
1 tbsp black treacle
4 large egg
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp milk
3 tbsp brandy

Procedure:

Heat oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1. Line the base and sides of a 20cm cake tin first with a double layer of brown paper, then with a double layer of baking parchment. In a large bowl, mix the fruit, almonds, peel, figs and cherries. Turn well and add the flour, spices and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar thoroughly, then add the vanilla extract, honey and treacle. Still beating, incorporate the eggs, then stir in the fruit and flour mixture. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the milk and stir in thoroughly. Add the brandy by the spoonful, until you have a soft dropping consistency.

Turn the batter into the cake tin and make a dip in the middle using the back of a spoon. Bake for 3½ hrs, then insert a skewer – if it comes out clean, it’s ready. If there is any cake mix on the skewer, give it 10 mins more and test again. When it’s done, remove the cake from the oven and leave to cool in its tin. The next day, remove from the tin, wrap in fresh greaseproof paper, then put it into an airtight tin or wrap tightly in foil. The usual thing is to keep the cake for at least a month before icing it, and to unwrap and sprinkle it occasionally with more brandy.
