Honey Cake (serves 10-12)
A gently spiced cake, perfect for warming you up in Winter
This cake is traditionally served at Jewish New Year (around September or October), with wishes for a sweet year to come, but we think it's great at any time through Autumn and Winter, with its warming spices and a rich depth of flavour from the honey. A sprinkling of flaked almonds on top adds a pleasing crunch to the cake, whilst ground almonds in the sponge ensure a perfect cakey texture. This cake keeps very well, and the flavour will mature and develop...if you can resist eating it all in one go that is!
