“I found this vintage recipe on the Internet while looking for unique recipes to submit for the Zaar World Tour. It comes from the recipe files of Margaret Dens Buytaert, a Belgain who resided in Wisconsin. The idea of coffee as the liquid in this quick bread intrigues me. Sorry that I will not have a chance to prepare it for a while. If you try it, please share your reactions.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a 9" by 4" in loaf pan by lightly greasing the sides. Cut a piece of wax paper or parchment to fit the bottow for quick removal.
  3. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon & cloves).
  4. In a separate bowl, quickly mix 1 egg. Spoon in and mix the honey, coffee, and oil.
  5. Quickly fold in the dry ingredients - mixing just enough to combine without toughening the batter.
  6. Fold into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Use a tooth pick to see if center is done.
  7. Slice thinly and serve warm plain or with butter.
