This was a wonderful cake. Was curious what a jewish new year cake taste like, so I just HAD to make it. And no regrets. i followed the recipe to the T, not changing a thing. The honey taste gave it a very distinct taste, and it blended very well with the spices. And the honey also gave it a very nice golden colour. This looked as good as it tasted! Thanks Mirj!

Awesome wonderful cake worth all the effort and time! Loved the colour, taste and the way it was gobbled down in seconds! Momma Mirj, your friends and family are really lucky to have you bake such good cakes for 'em:)

My husband and father-in-law loved this cake, but they said it was a bit dry. My solution... pour honey all over the top when finished cooking. After that, they said it was great! Thanks, I'll keep this recipe in my arsonal!

Made this for Rosh Hashanah and it was a nice dessert after lunch. It was easy to make as well as follow the instructions. The cake was done after 70 minutes in my oven. I used a bundt pan.

I baked it but it was a little bit dry, but it tastes very good. I wonder if the recipe is for high altitudes

Made this cake as a gift for a new co-worker celebrating Rosh Hashana and she said," This is the best honey cake I've ever eaten...It's better than my grandmother's!" She took a copy of the recipe to send home. I added an extra egg (just because there was only one left in the carton) and "aged" it for a couple of days as mentioned in the recipe. It came out just right! Thanks for posting, Mirj.

Very nice. Made small changes: substituted the oil for apple sauce, added one tsp ground ginger, one tsp ground cinnamon and halved the amount ground cloves. Made it last Sunday and had it with coffee after the Rosh Hashana meal on Wednesday.
