Honey Cake for Rosh Hashanah

Honey Cake for Rosh Hashanah | The Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
Rosh Hashanah is almost here – the Jewish New Year! One of my favorite customs of this holiday is eating honey cake, and this year I decided to give out individual slices in cute boxes wrapped with bakers twine and a fork. To decorate the top of the box and personalize this gift for people in our community, I used a beautiful label with a lace design.

A delicious sweet gift that can be enjoyed on Rosh Hashanah and during this entire month of High Holidays. That is, if the cake lasts. Wishing you all a “Shana Tovah” – A Sweet Year!

  2. Beat together all wet ingredients and then add all dry ingredients. You can use a whisk if there are clumps of flour still remaining in the batter.
  3. Pour batter into 1 9×13 pan or 2 8” round pans or even cupcake pans! Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes and check to see if top springs back when touched. Increase oven time in increments of 5 – 7 minutes until done. For cupcakes, bake for 15 minutes and check to see if done. Add baking time if needed.
