Spiced Honey Cakes

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup plus 2 Tbs white flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup olive oil
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
pinch salt

1 cup honey
1 cup water
5 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 slice orange
1/2 tsp almond extract

1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves

Mix flour with baking powder and baking soda and set aside. Beat
olive oil with orange juice, cinnamon, ground cloves and salt and
continue beating. Gradually stir in flour and mix well until a
medium soft dough is formed. Let stand for 10-15 minutes. Start
the oven now, setting it to 350. Shape dough into mounded ovals,
the size of a large walnut and flat on the bottom. Place on an
ungreased baking sheet and bake until light golden, about 20-25
minutes. Let cool.

While the honey cakes are cooling, combine all syrup ingredients
except almond extract in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil for 5
minutes. Skim the froth and remove the cloves, cinnamon stick and
orange slice and add the almond extract. With a slotted spoon, dip
the cooled honey cakes into the hot syrup for 30-35 seconds. Remove
caredully and place on a platter. Combine topping ingredients and
sprinkle on each cake. Makes 15-20 cakes.
