Hi Ladies!! and Gents!! i need help... I want to make a jewish honey cake for my Fiance for thursday... can someone tell me a recipe from a cake mix?
AOk so ive done a little searching on the internet. Someone suggested using a spice cake mix, but replace the oil with honey. I'm not sure how it will work out, but its worth a shot. Good luck.
here's my recipe... it's SO easy that, honestly, you don't need a box mix! Give it a try!!!!
1lb tin golden syrup (or honey, I suppose, LOL! But we've ALWAYS used golden syrup)
Cup of oil
Cup of sugar
1lb plain flour
2 tsp instant coffee
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Flaked almonds to decorate
Preheat oven to Gas Mark 3 ( that's 160°c or 325°f). Line a tin (the tin I use is approx 10” x 8”) both lengthways and widthways with foil, allowing a large excess on each side. Fold the excess foil under the tin. You will use this to keep wrap the cake, once it is cooked and cooled.
Put the syrup into a large mixing bowl. Put coffee into empty syrup tin and fill tin with hot water. Stir well and pour into the bowl (tin will be hot!). Add everything, except eggs, flour, baking powder and bicarb. Mix with a wooden spoon – do not use an electric hand mixer at this point! Add eggs, mix, then sift in the flour, baking powder and bicarb. Mix again, (do not worry about the mixture being lumpy, at this point) then use an electric hand mixer to smooth the mixture and to get lots of air bubbles into the mixture. Empty into the tin. Sprinkle with flaked almonds.
Bake for 1½ hours, then check to see if it is done.
The cake will keep for a week, if well wrapped.
AYES!!!! Almost Rosh Hashana. That means dinner at the rabbi's, and Mrs. Rabbi's most excellent honey cake!
I add a bit of ginger to mine - gives it that little extra kick!
Shana Tova (happy new year) to all.
AAh gut gebentched yohr.
