Honey Cake Recipe

Honey Cake Recipe

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
3 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 eggs (I use egg substitute)
3/4 cup sugar (I use sugar substitute)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups honey
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup almonds
2-3 ounces slivered almonds for topping

-Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cloves, ginger, cinnamon and allspice.
-In a different bowl, beat the eggs. Beat eggs lightly with an electric mixer (hand mixer or other), and gradually add the sugar.
-Beat the oil, honey, and coffee into the eggs and sugar. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture.
-Grease the pan. Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 60 to 75 minutes in bundt or fluted pan, until cake tests done (it springs back when you lightly touch the center of it). Do not over bake. Let cool 15 minutes and remove from pan. Ovens vary, so I suggest checking it at the 50 minute time frame.

You can wrap it in foil when the cake is completely cooled down, and if tightly wrapped, will last for one week at room temperature. Or, store it in an air tight container.

You can gently sift powdered sugar over the cake after it has cooled down, for decorative purposes. The honey gives it enough of a sweetness, so, for me, it was more for presentation.

I have made it with 1/2 cup of raisins, but prefer it without them.
I use a bundt cake or tube/fluted pan to cook it in. It will fit into three loaf pans, also. If you use the loaf pans the baking time is approximately 40-55 minutes.

Remember to sift your flour, no matter if it states it is presifted.
