I’m so excited to bring you this super easy honey cake recipe hack for Rosh Hashanah, using a ready-made mix! It has everything you need in a honey cake. Warm spices, a moist, delicious texture, and -bonus!- less time in the kitchen! You can also use different shaped cake pans if bundts aren’t your thing. See the back of the cake mix box for baking times.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix the ingredients together in the bowl of a mixer or by hand, until everything is incorporated.
Spray a bundt pan well with cooking spray and immediately transfer the batter to the pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
Cool for 10 to 15 minutes, then loosen the edges with a knife. Invert onto a large plate or cake dome.
Cool completely before icing (see below).
Combine all the icing ingredients in a bowl. Start by adding in one and a half tablespoons of cider or juice and add up to three tablespoons as needed. Pour over the cooled cake.
