WHY DO WE EAT HONEY CAKE FOR ROSH HASHANAH?

The holiday celebrates the dawn of the new year according to the Hebrew calendar. It is one of the two High Holy days in Judaism (Yom Kippur is the other) and therefore one of the most important holidays.

Honey cake is one of the traditional foods eaten on Rosh Hashanah. Honey symbolizes our hopes for sweetness in the year to come. It is also customary to eat apple slices dipped in honey on the holiday.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED?

  • 3 1/2 Cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • All spice to taste
  • 1 cup Vegetable Cooking oil
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 1 cup Unsweet Applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brewed Coffee or tea
  • 1/2 cup of Orange juice
  • All Spice (optional)

HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS EASY HONEY CAKE?

You only need one bowl and a spoon to mix this cake. You could, however, use a stand mixer if you prefer. Just be careful not to overbeat it after adding the flour, as this can make a cake rubbery.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and spray the baking pan(s).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the oil, honey, unsweet applesauce, sugar, brown sugar, all spice, eggs, vanilla, coffee or tea, and orange juice. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking pan(s) and bake.
  5. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.

A great topper is to mix honey and butter in a small bowl to make a tasty spread for your honey cake.


Shana Tovah!
