Honey Recipes

What else can I do with my 'Beelish Honey' ?

So you've drizzled it on fresh bread and butter, toast and maybe in your tea but there is SO much more you can do with your Beelish Honey!

Raw Honey

Iced Tea with Honey & Lime

A great refreshing summer drink!

  1. Pour 2 litres of boiling water into a large jug. Add 4 tea bags and allow to brew for 5 mins.
  2. Remove the teabags and allow the mixture to cool.
  3. Add 1/3 cup of raw honey and stir till dissolved.
  4. Squeeze in the juice of half a lime. Serve with ice and a thin slice of lime as a garnish. Enjoy!

Roasted Almonds in Raw Honey

Great as a snack straight from the jar !

Delicious served over ice cream with blueberries and strawberries  for a quick dessert.

Drizzle some Roasted Almonds and honey over Brie cheese on a cheese platter for a special treat.

Cinnamon Honey

Drizzle over thinly sliced banana on toast.

Drizzle over your cereal or granola.

Glaze onto a slice of pineapple and pop on the BBQ.


Ginger Honey

Add a spoonful to your cup of tea and for a special treat add a slice of lemon.

Spread over a slice of fresh bread or hot scones.

Use when stir-frying asian vegetables for a subtle ginger flavour with added natural sweetness!

Carrot & Honey Cake     

  • 150 g caster sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 300ml olive oil (or other vegetable oil)
  • 2 cups wholemeal SR flour
  • 4 medium/large carrots, peeled & grated
  • ½  teaspoon bi-carb soda
  • 200-250g honey 
  • Icing Ingredients: 
    • 125g unsalted butter
    • 250g cream cheese
    • 50-100g icing sugar to taste
    • Finely grated zest of 3 oranges (for a simple icing alternative mix icing sugar with the juice of an orange)
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and line the base of a 23cm round, springform cake tin
  2. Put eggs & sugar in a large mixing bowl, beat with electric mixer for about 10 minutes until pale, foamy and slightly thickened. Add oil and beat for a couple more minutes.
  3. Combine the flour, salt & bi-carb soda and sieve them into the egg mixture. Tip any bran left in sieve into the mixture also and fold in lightly. Finally fold in grated carrots. 
  4. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (Leave cake in cake tin whilst completing step 5)
  5. Heat honey in jar in microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute or tip into a saucepan and heat gently over low heat until honey is runny. Pierce the hot cake all over with a skewer then slowly pour the hot honey over cake so it soaks into the cake.  
  6. Leave it to cool completely before turning out of tin.
  7. The cake is lovely as it is but to add a touch of decadence, beat the softened butter in a bowl until smooth & fluffy, then beat in the cream cheese and orange zest. Sweeten to taste with the sieved icing sugar and spread over the cake when it is cold.
