Fat Free Honey Cake

Enjoy a moist slice of this honey cake with a big cup of steaming coffee on the it has a cup of strong brewed coffee right inside the batter too. :) Is it coffee break yet?

Fat Free Honey Cake
Makes 2 loaves (2 loaf cakes)

1 3/4 cups honey
1 cup strong coffee
1/2 cup currants, or raisins
3 tablespoons brandy (optional but a great flavor to add - needed for punch)
1/4 cup applesauce
1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup egg substitute
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon grated orange zest

In a saucepan, combine the honey and coffee, bring to a boil and cool. Soak currants in brandy. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend the applesauce, brown sugar and egg substitute. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices.
Stir the dry ingredients alternately with the coffee into the egg mixture. Fold in the currants and orange zest. Spray Pam in two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans (or use non-stick pans). Pour the batter in and bake for 1 hour; the top will be sticky, but a toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
