(from the Jews for Jesus Cookbook)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 C sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar, packed
  • 1 16 oz honey, slightly warmed (clover honey is good)
  • ½ C cold, strong coffee
  • 1 C peanut oil

  • 5 ½ C flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 oranges, grated (peel, pulp & all)
  • 1 C walnuts, chopped *

* you can substitute the walnuts with chocolate chips, or chopped apricots, or cranberries—in fact please do, some people don’t like the nuts and some may be allergic to them

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Beat eggs with both sugars. Add honey, coffee, peanut oil and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift flour with baking soda, powder and spices. Add grated orange to honey, then gradually beat in flour mixture. Add chopped nuts. Bake in 9 x 13 pan, which has been lined with baker’s parchment paper or a brown bag cut to fit the pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. If cake starts to burn before done, cover top with brown paper or lower temperature by 25 degrees. Makes 12-16 servings.
