Many have the tradition to eat honey cake on Rosh Hashana (beginning tomorrow evening, September 28th at sundown) symbolizing our wish for a sweet new year. I have experimented with many recipes and am proud to have finally found one that works every time. I tripled and quadrupled this recipe in the last few days as I prepared mini-cakes for my close friends and family members. Tonight was the lucky night when I made an extra for my husband and I to share, a pre-Rosh Hashana treat.
3/4 c. honey
1 c. sugar
1 c. oil
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 c. flour
1 c. strong coffee
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together. Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean (I baked it in smaller pans and baked approx 30 minutes)
Wishing you all a Shana Tova, a happy, healthy and successful year.
