* ½ cup oil
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup honey
* 4 large eggs
* 4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1tsp baking soda
* 2 tsp baking powder
* dash of salt
* 1 tsp cloves
* ½ tsp nutmeg
* 2 tsp cinnamon
* 1 cup of brewed cold black coffee
* 1 large apple, peeled
* ½ cup chopped nuts
* ½ chopped nuts and ½ cup raisins can be added to the batter.
* Two tbsp of brandy can replace 2 tbsp of the brewed coffee.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease 9 X 13 inch pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the oil, sugar, and honey. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Into a medium-sized bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
Add the dry mixture to the egg-honey mixture alternately with the cup of cooled coffee. Then grate the apple into the batter.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour, until the cake springs back when touched with a finger. The ground nuts may be sprinkled on the batter before baking.
