You might still be thinking about summer tomatoes, peach pie and drinks by the pool, but at The Nosher, we are thinking about honey cake and apple desserts, since Rosh Hashanah will be upon us before you know it!
Apple and honey cakes are traditional, sweet New Year desserts but they can definitely get a bit stale.
The honey cake from my childhood? My Great Aunt Ruth would make honey cake sometime around June, cut it into slices, freeze it and then defrost it in the fall to serve at my grandma’s house for Rosh Hashanah. Is it any wonder honey cake is far from my favorite dessert?!
Over the years, The Nosher has set out to find the freshest, traditional and non-traditional, super scrumptious apples and honey desserts that are perfect for your Jewish New Year celebrations. These desserts are a reminder that we can preserve traditions while adding our own spin on them. Ushering in a sweet New Year is no excuse for subpar cake, in fact it should be a reason to get inspired with your desserts. Please note: Great Aunt Ruth’s version is not included.
Pronounced: roshe hah-SHAH-nah, also roshe ha-shah-NAH, Origin: Hebrew, the Jewish new year.
