Ingredients

How to make it

  • Sift all the dry ingredients together except sugar
  • Cream the honey and sugar
  • Beat eggs, oil and whiskey.
  • Add the honey mixture alternately with the cofee into the dry mixture.
  • Fold in the rind, nuts, apples and citron.
  • Grease and line a large 9 x 13, 10 x 14 or similar pan with greased brown paper( I cut from a paper bag )
  • Add the batter to the pan.
  • Batter will be thin
  • Bake in a 350F oven until tested done, may be up to an hour.
  • If using pyrex decrease heat to 325F
  • Bake in the middle oven
  • May cover with foil last 15 minutes if browning too fast
  • It's done when sides pull away and center springs back when lightly touched or wooden toothpick comes out clean
  • Note: Remember, mixture must be baked in a flat pan and not in a tube or bundt pan or it will fall since the batter is thin.
  • Cool in pan 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Carefully loosen and invert on sugar/cinnamon dusted tea towel..
  • Invert cake back onto serving platter.
  • I usually cut cake in half, freeze one portion and cut the other into pieces for servings
  • This is a moist lovely cake with flavors improving with age.

    This looks really good. I think my dad would enjoy it especially. I'm saving this one and I will make a note to save it for Christmas (only 85 days left)! Thanks for sharing; an easy 5. - Natalie

    I've added my five as well Midge. Great recipe! I can appreciate Puddle's predicament, since I accidentally did the same thing to someone's recipe. But I hit the back arrow, hoping to correct it and somehow couldn't get back to the recipe to make amends. Hopefully they don't hate me!

    Dear Puddlewonderful, it's all right, we all make mistakes.I dread the day, that I misrate something too by accident

    I think most people know the stuff I bake and cook by now.

    Thanks for your kind thoughts!

    The computer won't let me delete it and I feel so bad. Again, I will contact the owner of the site to correct. It is a wonderful dish and I give it five plus....

    It's a great cake for any holiday. Not at all like a fruit cake, just a moist, dense fragrant honey type of cake.I'm sure you will enjoy it!

    This sounds very christmassey. As my husband doesn't like the traditional English fruitcake as it is so rich, I will try this one.
