How to Make Honey Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Adjust a rack to the lower third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Generously grease a 13x9x2 inch pan and line the bottom with a sheet of parchment paper.
  3. Have all ingredients at room temperature. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Add the oil, honey, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, coffee, orange juice and rye or whiskey, if using.
  4. Using a sturdy whisk or an electric mixer on lowest speed, stir together well to create a thick, thoroughly blended batter. Spoon the batter into the pan, and spread it level with a rubber spatula. Bake until the cake springs back when gently pressed in the center, 55 to 65 minutes.
  5. Transfer the cake pan to a wire rack and allow the cake to cool about 20 minutes before inverting the cake from the pan. (Or leg the cake cool completely in the pan and cut the cake into squares or rectangles before serving.)
  6. When the cake is almost completely cool, sprinkle the almonds over the cake, if desired.
