I guess I was a bit of a cake snob as I never made an angel food cake, usually it was all about the chocolate. well, to my satisfaction I grew out of it. Though as I get older I find that tangy,sour or a dark bitter chocolate is more to my liking. I am much more “adventurous” of trying new – anything. and it pays!

Rose’s Alpha Baker: Honey Cake For A Sweet New Year p.26

open picture

Honey Cake is traditionally served on “Rosh Hashanna” ,to symbolize a sweet Jewish new year. Like Rose, I never really cared for honey cake. Its usually quite heavy, dry and overly sweet, but that cup of tea or coffee is a must! Rose’ genius idea to add that cup of coffee to the batter created a moist cake. At first, I was a bit skeptical and hesitant about this cake from the large amount of sugar. The combination of brown sugar and honey created an interesting depth of flavor, very caramel-like. Clove, extra ginger and cinnamon turned a boring dry cake, into one with much character. Indeed, Rose has made a new name for the Honey Cake. Truly a cake that I will be proud to serve to Friends and Family for years to come.
