Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish religious holiday representing the New Year, so traditionally apples dipped in honey are part of the menu during this holiday.
Today I will post my recipe for a Jewish Apple Cake, which was given to me by a friend a couple of decades ago. I was not sure what made this particular recipe “Jewish”, so I turned to my readers for their feedback. One reader explained that Jewish desserts are usually made without dairy, so they can be served alongside the meat dishes, which also makes it a great dessert for Hanukkah holiday. If anyone else has a different take on this theory, please share your comments
I love honey cake, but especially more so around the holidays. There is something very soothing about having hot herbal tea with a piece of honey cake, on a cold winter day, which is perfect around Christmas.
