Apple Honey Cake In A Jar: celebrate Rosh Hashanah with these delicious & moist apple honey cakes in a jar. Give them out as gifts or serve them for dessert
Apple Honey Cake In A Jar
I can’t believe Rosh Hashanah is only a few days away, there’s so much prepping to do that I don’t know where to start. Luckily, my cousin is hosting it in her home this year so I will only need to focus on a couple of dishes. The chicken and dessert.
This Apple Honey Cake In A Jar is wonderful to give out as presents to your friends and family for Rosh Hashanah. Just attach a nice card or note and it will make a great impression.
Usually, honey cakes are made in loaf or bundt shape. But this year I wanted to make something different that will surprise and please its recipients. I usually bake my delicious Grandma’s Walnut Honey Bread, I haven’t baked that recipe in a jar yet, but it’s on top of my to-do list for next week.
If you’ve never heard of an apple honey cake before, it’s a very moist cake that has lots of flavor. I added coffee, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to give it a complex holiday taste. Jews eat honey during Rosh Hashanah to have a blessed and sweet New Year.
Per your preference, this recipe is enough to make 1 loaf or 4-5 cakes in a jar. I used my favorite Weck Jars that have a beautiful shape. You can certainly use your favorite brand, just make sure the jars are well greased on the inside so the Apple honey cake doesn’t stick and can be easily eaten.
I loved the touch of the spoon. That means that you can eat the cake wherever you are. Perfect for an afternoon pick me up at the office.
We want to wish everybody a healthy, blessed and sweet New Year 5767. Shana Tova U’ Metuka!
