I made this cake to bring for Rosh Hashana, so the key flavors were apples and honey. I used roughly 1/4 cup bass wood honey and 1/2 cup buckwheat honey. The buckwheat is a very dark, stronger flavored honey, which will likely impact the flavor. Yes, I’m trying to say, don’t use cheap honey.

6. Cool completely, dust with powdered sugar, serve.

This cake comes out incredibly moist. If you use a dark honey, the dark batter will alternate with the shredded apple, creating a almost zebra-like look. Everyone had seconds or thirds and seemed to really like this cake. It was such an easy cake to make and travels well, and left-over’s are great for breakfast the next day.
