Honey Cakes are a favorite Jewish dessert, with some recipes handed down mother-to-daughter. Served at many high holidays including Rosh Hashanah and Hanukkah, honey cakes are versatile enough to be eaten year-round. The strong taste of Heather Honey would work well with this combination of spices and coffee. For a super-sweet cake, I suggest Orange Blossom Honey, the sweetest. You could also try a stronger flavor, like Buckwheat Honey, for a cake that is closer to Mediterranean tastes. This Honey Glaze recipe can be used as a topping in other recipes, such as the Old World Cake, or the Honey Balls. It could be interesting to see what happens if it is poured on top of the Gingerbread, too.... For this glaze, you will probably prefer a sweeter honey like Orange Blossom Honey. However, for a lot of the Mediterranean breads this can be used on, Southern Belle Honey would work just as well, while imparting a bit more flavor.
