“I've tried many many honey cake recipes, and this is my favorite, both for depth of flavor and ease of production. It's basically a one-bowl cake, freezes very very well, and can be made in a variety of sizes. I got this from Amit Women's cookbook (Efrat chapter, Chicago), and can barely read the page because of all the spills on it. Even my mom, an extraordinary baker, has begun to use this recipe instead of her own. A perfect Rosh Hashana/Sukkot treat!”
