In a large mixing bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients (except the sugar). Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the eggs for 2-3 minutes. Alternatively, can use handheld beaters or stand mixer.
Add the sugar and continue to whisk together for 2-3 minutes.
Next, whisk in the oil, followed by the applesauce, orange juice, honey and coffee. Make sure to properly whisk together.
Make a well in the dry ingredient and slowly whisk in the liquid ingredients. The mixture will be thin and runny.

HELPFUL HINTS on How to Make a Great Bundt Cake:
Make sure to properly grease and flour your pan.
Do not over bake your cake as this is guaranteed to result in a dry cake. As all ovens are different, check your cake by conducting a "skewer test" five minutes before the end of the recommended baking time.
Use an oven thermometer in order to confirm the real oven temperature. You would be surprised to learn that there may be variations that exist between what you set your oven dial to and the actual temperature in the oven.
Whenever using honey in a recipe, always measure the oil beforehand as this will allow the honey to easily pour out of the measuring cup.
Prepare a day in advance to allow the flavors to develop.
