Jewish honey cake

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups All-purpose flour
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
1¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Baking soda
1 tablespoon Instant coffee
½ cup Boiling water
¼ cup Vegetable or peanut oil
1 cup Honey
Grated peel of 1 washed orange
2 tablespoons Brandy or any whiskey
4 Eggs
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Chopped walnuts

Combine first four ingredients and set aside. Mix the instant coffee with the water; then blend in the oil, honey, orange peel, and brandy. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until frothy; gradually add the sugar and beat until light. Add to the honey mixture. Combine the flour mixture alternately with the honey mixture, starting with flour and ending with flour. Stir in the walnuts. Pour the batter into an oiled and waxed paper-lined 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 325 degree F. oven for about 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean then it is done. Invert the cake onto a wire rack. Cool. Peel off the waxed paper and wrap in aluminum foil to maintain freshness.
