      It's the Jewish High Holiday season now, and you would think that I would have honey cake coming out of my ears by now, but this cake is so different from the honey cakes I usually make, so I had to try it. I followed the recipe almost exactly, I wanted the cake to be non-dairy, so I used margarine instead of butter and soy milk instead of regular milk. The cake had a very nice texture to it, rich and very similar to basboosa, a Middle Eastern semolina cake. I do think the lemon flavor was a little too overpowering, the honey and lemon taste reminded me a little of cough syrup. I don't think 4 tablespoons of honey was enough to sweeten the cake, especially with a full lemon's worth of juice in there. I'm going to try to make this again, this time upping the honey to about 1/3 of a cup and cutting back on the lemon juice (or use a much smaller lemon). This is a good cake to serve at the end of a Middle Eastern style meal, with some Turkish coffee or sweet mint tea. Thanks Vanessa!

      These little fingers are big delights, Vaneesa! They are absolutely delicious because of the honey and lemon syrup. What I really really like is how presentable these are without really putting in much of an effort for presenting these beautifully, they just come out beautiful when baked because of the sesame seeds on the top. Instead of baking this as a cake, I baked these as 8 muffins:) They're really a sight and such a delight - I like them so much that I don't have the heart to break them apart into little fingers! LOL:)) Thanks Vaneesa, these are a super hit and if I ever have a Valentine, I'll make sure I feed these to him;-)!

      Light and yummy! I'm a bit a sugar hound, so it wasn't quite sweet enough for me... but still delicious. (I poured a bit more honey over mine. :-) Thanks for sharing.
