This is honeycake to ring in a happy new year.
Baked in a traditional bundt pan (the ones used for coffeecake) from a long list of luscious ingredients including golden raisins, toasted almonds, fresh orange and lemon zest, Indonesian cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. The key player is a healthy helping of special buckwheat honey from Michigan. Buckwheat honey is the color of caramel with a bold, molasses-like flavor, making this a rich, deep, lovely cake. Serves 5-7.
This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday, October 2. The honeycakes will be available to ship starting Wednesday, September 28, just in time to arrive for the holiday.
