Spiced Fruited Bundt Cake/Bread

This is so tasty and really fairly healthy!  More of a bread than a cake, delicious either way!
I found this one in my  2011 Edition of America's Favorite Brand Name Recipes.
It would also be fantastic for breakfast; maybe with eggs and sausage!?!
-1 cup honey {I used 3/4 cup maple syrup, plus 1/2 cup sugar}
-1/3 cup vegetable oil {I always use canola}
-1/3 cup strong brewed coffee {you could also use strong brewed chai tea!}
-3 eggs
-2 1/2 cups flour
-1 1/2 tsp baking soda
-1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
-3/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 cups peeled and cored, chopped apples {about 3-4 apples;I used granny smith, use whatever you have}
-1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds or other nuts, optional {I left them out for the kids}
-1/2 cup dried cranberries {you could also use raisins or other dried fruit}
-powdered sugar for dusting, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine maple syrup, sugar {or honey}, oil and coffee in a mixing bowl.  Beat until well mixed.

4. Add baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to the mixture, mix well.
