Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and lightly flour two 9x5x3 inch loaf pans. In a small mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and allspice. In a large mixing bowl combine honey, sugar, banana, eggs, oil, coffee and lemon juice. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until thoroughly blended. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients and beat on low until combined. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 40-50 minutes. Cool cake in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pan and completely cool on wire rack. Makes 2 loaves.
