Orange Honey Cake Recipe

I actually succeed in turning quite a few people on to my honey cake. Mine is moist and spicy and easy to love; I trust it will make you forget all the indignities of past dried-out and brittle honey cakes. I make it several ways, all scrumptious, but this is one of my favorite. The secret ingredient, orange marmalade, was shared by my dear friend Leah.

Servings

Ingredients

  • 4 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup strong coffee at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons rum or brandy
  • 3 cups flour: all purpose, whole wheat pastry or spelt (spelt my favorite)
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda

Preparation

1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
