On medium heat warm the honey and leave to simmer for about 2 minutes until you see bubbles.

Take another bowl, put in the egg mixture and add honey. Combine it with the mixer until the mixture is doubled in size. Then take a spatula and stir a few times to make bubbles disappear. Then gently stir the flour until it is all combined into the mixture. In a greased baking pan place the mixture and bake it for 15 minutes. Once again stir it in the pan to get rid of the bubbles.
