Honey Cake


Ingredients:

  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 1¼ cups honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup golden raisins or chopped dates
  • 1 apple, grated
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Method:
1  Preheat oven to 300 F. Heavily grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
2  Combine flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in large bowl. Set aside. Stir together coffee and honey in a separate bowl. Set aside.
3  Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in brown sugar. Stir in vegetable oil until just combined.
4  Beat together half of flour mixture and all of honey mixture into egg mixture. Stir in remaining flour mixture, raisins and apples.
5  Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes or until cake is springy to the touch, has begun to come away from the edge of the pan and releases a cake tester cleanly. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes. Run the point of a flexible knife around the edge, unmould onto a rack, cool fully and leave in a cool place, covered, for 24 hours to allow flavours to mellow. Dust with icing sugar just before serving.
