Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) is around the corner, September 9th, and is that time of year where we wish all a happy, healthy and sweet new year! The date changes as it goes by the lunar calendar. In my family, we celebrate our traditional dinner by making food with honey as a main ingredient; thus, wishing everyone a sweet New Year.
Here is my favourite honey cake recipe developed by one of my Aunts who is very near and dear to my heart. Please enjoy this recipe shared with love for a happy and healthy New Year!
4 room temperature eggs
1 cup sugar
1 ½ cups honey
¾ cup cool coffee mix with 1 tsp. baking soda
¾ cup oil
3 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon ground cloves
Beat all ingredients well. Put in a prepared bundt pan bake at 350 degrees for ½ hour and lower to 325 degrees for another ½ hour.
This cake is delicious even in the morning for breakfast as the honey settles into nit.
Sara Brodsky – Culinary Services Coordinator – Calgary South
Sara’s love for cooking was her ticket to her current career as Culinary Coordinator. A self-taught cook, her inspiration came first from her mother, then from her interior design studies. Since becoming an interior designer, her enthusiasm and passion for colours have been applied more in cooking than in décor.
Teaching primary school children on a volunteer basis, about colours through icing paints and baking cookies, was her door to more opportunities in the culinary field. Before joining Trail Appliances, Sara taught cooking classes for children and adults, eventually taking on the school’s culinary coordinator responsibilities, making her a seasoned cook with a treasure trove of cooking techniques and great recipes to pass on to her students.
Like all our chefs at Trail Appliances, Sara continuously trains with our manufacturers to ensure that she is up-to-date with her in-depth knowledge on the selection of innovative products we carry. She is a great help in selecting the best cooking appliance to fit both your lifestyle and your needs.
