This traditional holiday cake gets its name because there is just about 1
cup of batter too much in this recipe and it you pour it all into your tube
pan without using the collar, it will go over the top and all over your
oven! Put eggs in mixing bowl of electric mixer and beat at medium speed.
Add remaining ingredients, except nuts, in order: sugar, brown sugar, oil,
honey, coffee, flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon,
nutmeg, ginger and powdered cloves, while beating continuously. Fold nuts
in last, reserving some to place on top. Make a 2 inch collar around the
outside of a lightly oiled and floured tube pan and its inside circle. Pour
in batter. Sprinkle remaining nuts on top. Bake at 335~, 45-55 minutes
until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out dry. Allow
to cool before removing from pan. You can also bake this cake in loaf pans
cutting down on the baking time accordingly. Enjoy!
