Shana Tova Honey Cake

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy (and sweet) Jewish New Year. I’d definitely recommend trying out this honey cake recipe that I found on SmittenKitchen. WOW, this cake looked pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

Some tips of my own:

  1. Be sure to update the recipe to use 1 tsp of baking powder instead of the original 1 tbsp.
  2. I used a 9″ Kugelhopf Pan to make my cake with lots of baking spray but no parchment paper.
  3. I didn’t quite use all the batter from the recipe. Left behind about 1/2 – 1 cup of batter.
  4. If you’re in two minds about whether or not to use the whiskey I say DON’T use it. I did use it and I regretted it. I just don’t like that alcohol flavor in the cake.

Have a great new year and don’t forget to dip some apple in honey and go blow a shofar!
