This cake will keep one month, well wrapped in plastic wrap. Keep it in the refrigerator. It improves with age.

1/2 cup strong cool coffee
Grated rind and juice of 1 orange
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar

4 eggs, separated
1 cup chopped walnuts

Bring the honey to a boil, then cool it.  Sift the flour with the soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, twice.

Combine the coffee with the grated rind, orange juice and vanilla.  

Cream the butter with the sugar.  Add the honey.  Beat the egg yolks and add to the honey.

Add the flour mixture alternately with the coffee mixture.  Stir in the nuts.

Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter.

Pour into a generously greased bread pan.  Bake in a 325 F. oven 50 to 60 minutes or until done when tested.
