Pre-heat the oven to 170C and grease and line a 1ltr loaf tin
Place the oil, ginger honey, chopped ginger pieces and eggs into a large bowl and beat together well. Mash the banana with the golden syrup and yoghurt and add to the liquid and beat in, then sift in the dry ingredients and beat together well until you have a pale brown liquid batter
Pour into your greased loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the cake is risen and golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean
The moment it comes out of the oven, brush a little runny honey over the top, then leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins before turning out onto a wire wrack to cool completely. Because it’s an oil cake with no sugar it will drop but this is supposed to happen and you’ll end up with a gloriously fudgy cake that, eaten warm, is a beautiful thing.

Sunshine in your day!
My beehives are located in sunny sub-tropical Brisbane, QLD and the bees enjoy copious amounts of sunshine all year round. As an organic minded beekeeper I carefully harvest the delicious liquid golden sunshine so you too can enjoy a little sunshine in your day. You can come for a fun tour of the Apiary (Brisbane based) and if you want a backyard beehive of your very own, I have bees for that too!
So today I got surprised with some bees and Deb and John came and were super patient. They answered all of my questions and gave a hands on experience. I got a very calm colony. They came and made sure my hive was in a good spot.
I was worried that this honey could be a bit too tart with the berries, but it is perfect, just right blend of honey and berries. I find it really nice on salty crackers as well, just to get the hint of sweetness and salt. Thank you so much for your hard work
Echoing all the other reviews - this is honestly an amazing experience! Deborah was a delight during the experience, sharing her knowledge and showing us the many different stages of each hive. She is so passionate about the bees and it honestly rubs off on you. You have time to just stand there and appreciate the glistening honey, listen to the meditative sound of buzzing bees, look at all the different colours of the bee's 'pollen pants' and just watching the bees going about their business when she lifts each frame. We could honestly watch them all day and the smell of the honey is to die for! If you have always wanted to try honey comb - this is the way to experience it!!
Highly recommend this experience - even more so if you are lucky enough to have the space to start your own! We rushed home to enjoy the goodies and to try the delightful creamed honey (it is fantastic by the way)! Thanks John & Deborah :)
