As I mentioned last week, we had a special dinner for Rosh Hashanah last week. Chris made brisket, matzo ball soup and latkes - all delicious (or so I'm told since I don't eat meat so didn't partake in the brisket). I made some lovely Challah and then we finished off the meal with an Apple Honey Bundt Cake recipe that I found on AllRecipes.com. It was incredibly good!
1 cup white sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3 apples - peeled, cored and shredded
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch Bundt pan.
In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and oil. Beat in the eggs until light, then stir in the honey and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice; stir into the batter just until moistened. Fold in the apples and nuts.
Bake for 50 to 65 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the crown comes out clean. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before inverting onto a plate and tapping out of the pan.
Everyone loved this cake and it was very easy to make. The most time consuming part was peeling, coring and then shredding the apples but it was well worth the effort. The only changes I made were to leave out the allspice (because I didn't have any) and to add an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time. It could just be my oven but it was definitely not finished baking even after 65 minutes.As you can see in the picture above, the cake was well enjoyed.
I hope you all have a sweet new year!
