Orange Honey Cake

I once had  a honey cake baked by a Greek friend - this is very like her recipe - and it is so easy to make!
Frost with a butter cream icing or just dust with icing sugar!

1 cup  honey
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon orange zest or more if you like a realy intense flavour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch baking soda
Butter, for greasing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together honey and eggs until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Stir in orange zest. Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add slowly to egg mixture folding in gently.

Lightly grease a cake pan with butter. Add the mixture to the pan and bake. After 30 minutes check for doneness with a wooden skewer. (If it comes out clean, you are done. If not, give it another 5 minutes and check it again).
