Recipe by justcallmetoni
I found this vintage recipe on the Internet while looking for unique recipes to submit for the Zaar World Tour. It comes from the recipe files of Margaret Dens Buytaert, a Belgain who resided in Wisconsin. The idea of coffee as the liquid in this quick bread intrigues me. Sorry that I will not have a chance to prepare it for a while. If you try it, please share your reactions.
- 3 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions See How It's Made
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Prepare a 9" by 4" in loaf pan by lightly greasing the sides. Cut a piece of wax paper or parchment to fit the bottow for quick removal.
- Mix together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon & cloves).
- In a separate bowl, quickly mix 1 egg. Spoon in and mix the honey, coffee, and oil.
- Quickly fold in the dry ingredients - mixing just enough to combine without toughening the batter.
- Fold into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Use a tooth pick to see if center is done.
- Slice thinly and serve warm plain or with butter.
