....A Honey of a Cake

3 Cups Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Ginger, Ground
1/4 tsp Allspice
3 Eggs
1 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Strong Brewed Coffee, Cooled
1 Cup Honey

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and Flour a 9x13 Pan. In a medium bowl, whisk Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Cinnamon, Salt, Ginger, and Allspice. Mix Eggs and Sugar until Fluffy. Gradually Beat in the Oil, Coffee, and Honey. Add the Flour mixture to the Batter in 3 additions, mixing until just combined after each addition.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, bake until the Cake springs back when lightly touched in center and toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out barely clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour and 5 minutes. Serve warm or store covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. 'It's delicious when freshly baked, but it becomes moister and richer the next day.'

It was a little drier than I had hoped but the spices were good, I think I could have made the cup of Coffee stronger. Also, I didn't have a chance to try it the next day, I made this for Mother's Day and then passed the rest along to the Monday Night Dinner Group as I headed off to New Orleans.
