Yield:8 to 10 servings


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon instant coffee

In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda and set it aside.
Mix the instant coffee with the water; blend in the oil, honey, orange zest, and whiskey.
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 the flour and ending with flour. Stir in the walnuts.
Pour the batter into an oiled and waxed paper lined 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake for about 50 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean and dry the cake is done. If moist, keep baking until the toothpick comes out clean.
