How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 350&deg. Grease and flour a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl beat honey, butter, milk, egg and zest until well combined. Add flour mixture and beat. Stir in walnuts. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 50-60 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool on rack 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan to cool completely.
