Every self-respected Jew on the night of Rush Hashanah is sitting
down with his family and close friends for dinner. The dinner should
consist of the most delicious Jewish food on the planet; and yes, if
you make Gefilte fish like my mom does it is delicious.
And then you have family like ours-we could not get together for
dinner tonight as Alex (thing #1) is in college and could not come
home in the middle of the week, the husband is working too late (this
is what I was told, but I honestly think it's a hump day and he is
probably with his golf buddies crying over the fact that the golfing
season is over). Whatever the reason we are getting together for Rosh
Hashanah dinner not tonight but on Friday. In the mean time Max - Chmax (thing
#2) and I have an evening to kill, so we decided that, in honor of the
Jewish New Year we would bake not one, but two cakes - apple cake and
a honey cake.
I will not bore you with recipes, instead I will show what fun we had.
I let Max mix all the sugar and syrup ingredients and this what happened
I also have to brag about one piece of equipment, that I’ve used in my kitchen for the past 20 years. It moved with us from our very first apartment , then our first house and finally our current home. Hmmmmmmmmm on the other hand if it’s still running, I probably don’t use it enough….
We have two cakes at ones inside my oven, just look at them getting ready:
and here are the finish products:
Happy New Year !!! La Shana Tova!!! Have a wonderful 5772!!
