I was excited to find a coffee cake recipe that uses honey in place of sugar as our friends with bees gave us 14 lbs of honey! This one does so with a good result- a nicely textured cake that is not overly sweet. I made this in a bundt pan and used 3 cups of garden blackberries and was pleased with the extra amount. I also made this using all white-whole-wheat flour. Thank you.
