Growing up, Lyle's Golden Syrup loaf cake was up there with my favourite cakes you could buy. Always moist, sticky and sweet with a tacky top that I couldn’t get enough of. Lyle's Golden Syrup is a sacred British ingredient, the glue that holds together lots of our classic bakes. If you’re not lucky enough to live in the U.K. and have unlimited access to this golden elixir, be sure to fill your suitcase when you head back after your visit.
Honeycomb is an impressive decoration that is surprisingly easy (and pretty magical!) to make. Lyle's Golden Syrup is a key ingredient for making good honeycomb, as the structure of the sugar syrup helps to stabilise the honeycomb mixture. It only takes a few minutes to make, and seeing it come to life and the shattering it into shards is lots of fun.
This cake keeps well for around a week but the honeycomb may begin to dissolve if kept in a humid environment, so eat as quickly as you can after decorating.
