Honey Cake

Honey (In Hebrew: דְּבַשׁ) is a sweet food made by bees using nectar from flowers. The variety produced by honey bees is the one most commonly referred to and is the type of honey collected by beekeepers and consumed by humans. During Rosh Hashanah, one of the most important Jewish Holidays, we eat a slice of apple dipped in honey.


3 1/2 cups sifted flour.
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
One tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup nuts, walnuts, or almonds
Four eggs
3/4 cup sugar
Four tsp. vegetable oil
2 cups dark honey
1/2 cup brewed coffee.
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. powdered cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger

Sliced Honey Cake

Sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger together (spices depend on your personal taste).
Beat eggs, gradually adding the sugar. Beat until thick and light in color. Beat in oil, honey and coffee; stir in flour mixture and nuts. Grease an 11x16x4 inch baking to pan and line with aluminum foil. For 2 smaller cakes, use two 9 inch loaf pans. Turn the batter into the pan(s). Bake at 325 deg F (170 deg C) 1-1/4 hours for the large cake, 50 minutes for the 2 smaller ones, or until browned and cake tester comes out clean. Cool on a cake rack before removing from pan.
