Classic Date Cakes

|Light brown sugar||2 Tablespoon|
|Clear honey||4 Tablespoon|

Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is fluffy.
Beat in the honey, then the eggs.
Sift in 125 g/4 oz of the flour and the spice and fold in.
Stir in enough of the milk to give the batter a dropping consistency.
Coat the date pieces with the remaining flour and add to the batter.
Mix well and spoon into 12 greased patty pans.
Bake in a fairly hot oven (200°C/400°F or Gas Mark 6) for 15 to 20 minutes or until risen and golden brown.
Remove the cakes from the pans and cool on a wire rack.
