Portions 12

You need

  • 250 g Honey
  • 200 g Sugar
  • 65 g Butter
  • 125 ml Malt Beer
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 TSP Ground cardamom
  • 1/2 TSP Ground Cloves
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • Rum Flavor
  • Bitter Almond Flavor
  • 500 g Flour
  • 1 TBSP Baking Powder
  • 150 g Powdered Sugar
  • 4 TBSP Hot Water

Here’s how to do it

  • First, put the honey, sugar, butter and malt beer in a pot and slowly heat everything until it melts.
  • Place into a mixing bowl and let chill.
  • When the mixture has cooled down, slowly stir in the following ingredients: egg, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, rum flavor and bitter almond.
  • Now, sieve thee flour and the baking powder, and stir it slowly into the dough.
  • Once you are done, you can spread the dough on a baking tray. The tray should have a slightly higher edge. You can also fold a rim with baking paper. Line the baking tray with baking paper or grease it with butter. Spread the dough about 1 cm thick on the tray.
  • Next, bake your dough at 175-200 °C for about 20 minutes. Since every oven is different, I advise you to check with a stick test revery 10 minutes to make sure that it does not burn or get too dry.
  • After taking t out of the oven, garnish with icing.
  • For the icing, sieve 150 g powdered sugar into a small bowl and add 4 tablespoons of hot water. Now mix both until you have a smooth and viscous mass.
  • Spread evenly on the warm pastry.
  • As soon as the honey bread has cooled down you can take it off the tray and cut it into small pieces.
  • Cut into pieces it can be stored perfectly in small boxes.
  • Enjoy!
