Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from The King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion cookbook. I needed a quick glaze for some tea cakes and tried this recipe. Simply double the ingredients for a larger batch.

Wow! How simple and perfect! The amount of lemon juice in the honey is just enough to notice. This glaze went well atop cranberry scones. Thanks for sharing! We'll be using this recipe concept repeatedly and experimenting with the addition of various other citrus juices. (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #41)


  1. Heat honey until it's liquid.
  2. Stir in lemon juice.
  3. Apply glaze to pastry while warm or cool.
