This is a great syrup for pouring over gingerbread, but it is wonderful on almost anything. For best flavor, poke holes in the cake with a fork before pouring syrup.
1 1/2 cups honey
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 In a small saucepan, combine the honey, water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until boiling. Continue to boil until the mixture is reduced by a fourth. Pour warm syrup over cake and allow to sit for a few minutes before serving.
