March: Honey
Wiregrass EC
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup honey
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup warm coffee
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch angel food cake pan or bundt cake pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Make a well in the center to add the oil, honey, sugar, eggs, vanilla, coffee, and orange juice.
Using an electric mixer on slow speed, combine the ingredients well to make a thick batter.
Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet and bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Let the cake stand for 15 minutes before removing it from the pan, then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.

When my friend gave me a jar of his own honey, I knew I had to use it for a special honey cake. He keeps hives in the Abbeville area. The honey from his bees is very dark; it derives from the Tulip Poplar nectar the bees gather. It is, hands down, the best honey I've ever tried. This recipe will work with other types of honey too, though!
