This moist honey cake filled with raisins and almonds is perfect for celebrations, esp Rosh Hashana in Israel. It receives extra flavour from a honey and lemon glaze.
The flavors in this cake are SUPERB- but the COOKING TIME WAS WAY TOO LONG!!!! I had to throw my cakes away...they were totally inedible because they were overcooked. TRY THIS RECIPE - the flavors are amazing, just watch the cooking time very carefully- I'd say to start checking after about 30 minutes. I will make this again because it seems like it has great potential. - 02 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Tried this recipe the it was almost perfect, the cooking time was extensive, I have checked it 60 minutes after putting it into a oven and it was already slightly overcooked next time I will check on it after 45 or 50 minutes, also the amount of nuts and raisins better be doubled from what the recipe suggests. Other then that, it was good. Definitely will do it again. - 24 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It was my first honey cake ever and I was very impressed! I also glazed the sides of the cake too to make it extra moist!! - 05 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
