Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously spray a nine or ten inch tube or angel food cake with non-stick cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the baking pan on it.
In a large mixer bowl or food processor, briefly blend the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. In a food processor, add in the oil, honey, white sugar, brown sugar and blend well about 30 seconds. Add in the eggs, vanilla, almond extract and coffee/espresso and blend well another minute.
By hand, fold in chocolate chips. Spoon or pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with almonds. Place cake on baking sheet and bake until done, about 60-75 minutes until cake springs back when gently pressed with fingertips.(If baking in a spring form pan, bake the cake longer and slower or center will peak. It will also take about 20-30 minutes longer to bake).
Cool ten minutes before unmolding from pan.
Meanwhile, to make the Honey Chocolate Glaze, place the water or cream in a microwavable bowl and heat until bubbly, on high. Remove from the microwave and whisk in the chocolate, honey and zest, whisking to blend until smooth and glossy. Refrigerate about 2-3 hours until it thickens but you can still spread it on the cake. If it is quite stiff, warm it slightly until you can drizzle it on the cake. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine to make it more pliable.
You also omit the glaze and simply dust with confectioners' sugar.
