From: esined@... (Denise Gaunt) Date: Mon, 21 Aug 1995 17:19:34 GMT Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Sift first 5 listed ingredients into a bowl.
In another bowl, combine honey with molasses, apple juice concentrate, and coffee. Drop 2 whole eggs into a mixing machine bowl. Combine with orange zest and sugar until well-blended. On low speed, beat in oil. Add sifted ingredients and wheat germ alternately with coffee mixture. Add raisins, nuts, seeds, and liquor or vanilla to batter and blend. Put remaining 2 egg whites into a mixing bowl and beat until firm peaks form (do not overbeat).
Fold into batter. Grease two 8-inch loaf pans with sweet butter/ margarine blend. Divide batter between the pans. Bake in center section of oven for 50 minutes. Cover loosely with sheet of aluminum foil to prevent tops from over-browning. Return to oven for 10 minutes. Fully baked cake will begin to come away from the sides of the pan, and when a tester is inserted in the center, comes out clean. Place pans on cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Loosen around sides with a blunt knife and carefully invert, then set loaves upright on rack and cool completely. Sprinkle, if desired, with confectioners' sugar before slicing.
