When I got married in 1970, I did not know how to boil water, but with much perseverance and eagerness to bake and cook, I went full speed ahead. Of course there were many trials and errors along the way. Today, I live in Monsey, NY, and B"H, besides teaching English and History to 6th grade girls, I am also teaching Holocaust Studies and Home Management to 12th grade girls (this includes some cooking and baking). Would you like to know where my best recipes come from? They come from my mother and my shvigger (may they both have gezunt and nachas biz hindred un tzvuntzig), because there's nothing in comparison to the taste from the alte heim. I have been using this recipe for ka'h, 46 years. Before Rosh Hashanah I always get calls from friends and relatives asking for my honey cake recipe, and the response is always, "Shaindy, this is the best ever!" The trick is definitely the banana liqueur, which gives it the right zinger. Enjoy and may it truly be a sweet year!
