2.
Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and fold into the mixture, being careful not to overwork
3.
Melt the butter and honey together in a pan over a low heat. While stirring, pour the mix into the bowl, making sure it is well incorporated. Leave to rest for 30 minutes
4.
Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3

Once rested, spoon the mix into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm nozzle. Pipe the mix to just below the top of each mould and cook for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden brown
Room for a little one
