Apple Honey Cake In A Jar: celebrate the fall and 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 prep 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 flavors. 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!

These are so cute, but I fear I may want more than one 🙁

This is such a great idea, I am pinning this one!
Thanks so much Sara!
These look delicious! Do you think they would last long enough to be mailed using priority shipping?
Hi Elizabeth! They didn’t last in my house more than a couple of days because everybody ate them! But since they have oil I am sure the can last 3-4 days
These sound amazing I just have one question what does the plus one for the flour mean?
Thank you, Lori! it was a typo: I mean 1 1/4 c plus 1 tablespoon of flour.

Where can I buy them?
the jars are available online and some stores like sur la table
I just made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! Since I wasn’t sending it as gifts, I decided to forgo the jars and just make the recipe as one big loaf. I followed the recipe almost exactly, although since my wife doesn’t like coffee, I used chai tea instead which I think complimented the spices nicely. I didn’t add the nuts this time, but I probably will next time. I might also add some more apple to it, as the pieces seemed to get lost in the cake, but overall it was a phenomenal cake. Thanks so much for the recipe!
You’re welcome Ari! Glad you liked it. The chai idea is genius! the spices must compliment the apple flavor nicely. Thanks for your feedback

If these are canned with lids, what do you think the shelf life would be on them? I ask because I have seen other recipes made the same way that if you put lids on they will actually seal. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Hi Lisa! I’d say a week or 10 days
WOW, I’ll try it this week 😍
Let me know how it comes out!
