Honey Cake with Caramelized Apples

What is Honey Cake?

A honey cake is exactly what it sounds like: a cake made with honey as the primary (or only) sweetener. This particular cake is perfect for Rosh Hashanah celebrations when it is customary to eat foods made with honey. The honey symbolizes hopes for a sweet new year. :)

Simple Ingredients

To make this honey cake you'll only need a few pantry staples. The caramelized apples are super easy to make too. 

Caramelize the Apples

They key to perfectly caramelized apples is not to slice them too thick, and not to put your heat up too high. 

Make the Cake

Mix up the cake batter and bake it in an 8-inch square pan. So simple!

Slice It Up

Once the cake has cooled, slice it up and get ready to dig in.


Top each slice with caramelized apples and serve your honey cake with vanilla ice cream!
