Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan, and line the bottom and sides with buttered parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir to combine the hot water and honey. Add the salt, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder; stir to dissolve. Add the rum, fennel, nutmeg, cinnamon, and crystallized ginger; stir to combine. Gradually add rye flour, and mix well; gradually add all-purpose flour, and continue stirring. Add the orange zest, raisins, and almonds, stirring for about 25 strokes to fully combine.

Transfer batter to prepared pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake until deep brown and a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 80 minutes.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool. Remove cake from pan, turn it on its side, and remove the parchment paper. When the cake is completely cool, wrap in aluminum foil, and allow to stand at room temperature for 1 to 2 days to allow the flavor to develop.

Cut the cake into 1/2-inch slices, and cut each slice in half. To serve, spread with unsalted butter, top with warm applesauce, and drizzle with honey.
