  These delicious cakes are best left in the garden for the Elemental Folk on nights of Wiccan significance, such as Samhain or Lammas.


    ½ cup sweet Muscat wine
    2 tablespoons fine brown sugar
    1 large egg
    ⅔ cup flour
    ½ teaspoon poppy seeds
    ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ⅛ teaspoon salt
    Sunflower oil for frying

Mix the egg and the Muscat wine in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix together the flour, poppy seeds, cinnamon, sugar and salt. Stir this into the egg mixture. Let it stand for about ½ hour. Combine the nutmeg and honey in a small bowl. Heat some oil in a frying pan (about ½ inch in the bottom) until it’s hot. Drop the batter into the oil one generous spoonful each time and fry until golden. Place on paper towels to drain and then dip into the honey mix. Delicious!
