DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees; generously grease and flour two 9x5 loaf pans.
  • In a large1-quart saucepan, combine the coffee and honey and bring to a boil; let cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg; stir in the oil and brown sugar.
  • In another large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.
  • Stir in the nuts and raisins; (the recipe said that Grandpa Sid always said, "Not enough nuts!" so Grandma always put extra in---smile).
  • Alternately stir the dry flour mixture and the wet honey mixture into the egg mixture.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pans and bake for 70 minutes or until the cakes are springy to the touch.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, then turn onto wire cooling racks to cool.
  • Wrap tightly in foil and let sit for 24 hours, so that the flavor of the honey has time to develop.
