Honey Sponge Cake

½ cup sugar
½ cup honey
4 eggs
1 cup sifted flour
Mix sugar and honey and boil till syrup spins a thread when dropped from spoon. Pour syrup over yolks of eggs which have been beaten until light. Beat this mixture until cold; add flour, cut and fold beaten whites into mixtures. Bake 40 or 50 minutes in a pan lined with buttered paper in slow oven. (This can be made with a cupful of unheated honey in place of the honey and sugar syrup, but the quality it not so good).
