If you love Tortes, but have been looking for a lighter filling, rather than the traditional butter cream, this is a great recipe for you. The cake layers are very thin, and the filling is mostly apples, with a nice caramel glaze.
I was looking for a recipe for an apple cake that would resemble a favorite of mine baked by someone at my church, and this one comes extremely close to the taste I recall. The cake batter is not sweet and rather flaky once baked, almost like a pie crust, but the sweetness of the apple filling pulls it all together very nicely.
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 apples, and already posted recipes for Apple Dip, Apple appetizers, Apple Bundt Cake, and here is one from my sister-in-law, for a delicious Apple Sheet Cake.
I have been maintaining my blog for several years now, hence there are over 650 recipes out there which I prepared, pictured, and posted.
To simplify the lookup of a favorite recipe, I decided to prepare new posts with pictures and links to groups of similar recipes for a quick and convenient way of locating the one you wish to try.
