Today’s Rosh Hashanah recipe of the day brought to you by Meredith Jacobs is a nice alternative to the traditional honey cake. Enjoy!
Rosh Hashanah is known as a holiday that loves sweetness–after all, that’s what the whole dipping apples in honey thing is all about. And traditionally you’d find a honey cake on the holiday table–sweet and spicy. But personally, I never really liked that honey cake. I’m a fan of apple cake. This is my mom’s recipe and I think it’s delicious. I hope you like it too.
3 cups flour
2 ½ cups sugar
1 cup cooking oil
5 unbeaten eggs
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup orange juice
2 ½ teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons baking powder
8-10 thinly sliced apples
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.
3. Beat together flour, sugar, oil, eggs, salt, orange juice, vanilla, and baking powder until smooth in a large bowl.
4. In another bowl, mix together apples with 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 3 teaspoons sugar.
5. Layer apples in the bottom of the pan. Pour over enough batter to cover, then layer more apples, then batter again. Top with apples.
6. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Recipe for Chicken Soup:
My kids love this chicken soup. Why? Because I let the flavor of the chicken and vegetables infuse the broth creating a rich, velvety, and delicious soup. I make this every other week, freezing part of it use whenever we need it. My kids like it with matzah balls(of course) and they also like to eat the chicken shreds. Read the rest of this entry →

Today’s Rosh Hashanah recipe of the day is a cool treat for the taste buds. Zoe Singer tells us how to make green apple soda, a not-so-classic take on that whole apples and honey thing. Remember, the first night of Rosh Hashanah is September 16th.
Recipe for Green Apple Soda:
If you have a juicer, simply juice the apple and add the remaining ingredients. Otherwise, you’ll need cheesecloth to strain the juice.
Tip: If you need to make this soda truly green for some reason—say, you’ve inadvertently given your toddler unrealistic expectations—a drop each of blue and yellow food coloring will do for the whole batch. Read the rest of this entry →
