Rusty’s Honey Cake

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup strong, hot coffee
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3½ cups soft wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger (or up to 1 teaspoon according to taste)
  • Up to 1 cup chopped nuts


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream butter with honey and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well.

Add baking powder and baking soda to the hot coffee (the mixture will foam up).

Add salt and ginger to flour. Then add the coffee mixture alternately with the flour 

 mixture to the creamed mixture. Add chopped nuts.

Line two 9- x 5-inch pans with greased and floured waxed paper. Pour half the cake

batter into each pan. Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 1 hour or until a knife stuck into the center comes out clean.
