  The Story:
  
  The rural origins of Appenzell cookery are evident even in this
  substantial honey cake. It is very fashionable during the festivities
  at the end of the year to serve a spiced honey cake following the
  example of the famous triangular "Biberli", which also blends honey
  and spices. This recipe is inspired by the "Bacheschnitte" which are
  served on the "Funkensonntag", a spring festival held to exorcise all
  the evil spirits of winter by fire.
  
  The recipe:
  
  Gently heat the honey in a copper bowl or a bain-marie.
  
  Heat the milk with the sugar separately then add to the honey and
  stir well over a low heat. Leave to cool.
  
  Put the flour into another bowl and stir in the honey mixture and
  then the other ingredients.
  
  Work all these together to a smooth consistency .
  
  Place a greased flan ring (22 ... 24 cm diameter, 3.5 cm high) on a
  baking tray and fill with the mixture.
  
  Brush the top with milk and score a decorative pattern on the surface
  using a fork.
  
  Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 oC (test with a needle).
  
  When cold, decorate with icing.
