Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C (356 degrees F) with rack in center of the oven.
Butter and flour, or spray with a nonstick vegetable/flour spray, a 9 x 5 x 3 inch (23 x 13 x 8 cm) loaf pan.
Mix baking powder with the flour. In another bowl mix the sugar with the water, eggs, spicemix and the honey.Add the dry ingredients to the water/egg mixture and beat until incorporated. Immediately pour into the prepared pan. Top of with the nuts ore anything else.
