5 Honey Cake Recipes For Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is the time when we ring in the Jewish New Year, and we want to do it in as sweet a way as possible. As a symbol of the sweet new year we hope is to come our way, we dip an apple in honey, and make a bracha loud and clear. We also have the custom to drizzle honey over the challah, and eat honey cake for dessert. One helpful tip I discovered while making honey cake is to briefly microwave your honey (for about 10 seconds) before measuring it for your recipe. This makes the honey come out of the container much more quickly. To save yourself a sticky mess, spray your measuring cup with some non-stick cooking spray before measuring your honey.  Now try one of these new honey cake recipes.
