This is honeycake to ring in a happy new year.
Baked in a traditional bundt pan (the ones used for coffeecake) from a long list of luscious ingredients including golden raisins, toasted almonds, fresh orange and lemon zest, Indonesian cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. The key player is a healthy helping of special buckwheat honey from Michigan. Buckwheat honey is the color of caramel with a bold, molasses-like flavor, making this a rich, deep, lovely cake. Serves 5-7.
