GINA’S HAIR-RAISING HONEY CAKE

We hope you can join us at 12 NOON ON FACEBOOK for a real-time cook-a-long. The idea is that all of us (you and us) will measure and prepare the ingredients and utensils listed below (before we start) and we will make the cake together, step by step, in real time. You will be able to make yours at exactly the same time as we do, and ask questions along the way.

You can print the list below, or go to our FB page, where you will find the list which you can download or print off. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE WE START

MEASURING HONEY:

We will measure the honey together – make sure you buy a jar/tub of honey larger than 500 g. It is very difficult to get 500 g honey out of a 500 g jar (but it is easier if it is glass).

MIS EN PLACE:
Getting everything ready before you start any recipe is a great idea.
Use small bowls, drinking glasses or coffee cups to put measured ingredients in.
Do not mix the ingredients yet.

 ELECTRIC MIXER:

This recipe is easily made with an electric hand held mixer or a stand mixer. If you have neither, a stick blender will work. You could also use a hand whisk and a silicone/rubber spatula.

CAKE TIN:

This makes 1 large honey cake and best in a large cake tin with a hole in the centre (like the large silicone one that we all use, pictured).

Preferable if it does not have a removable bottom as it is very liquid and may leak. 

If that is all you have (e.g. a non-stick angel cake tin), place 2 layers of foil around the outside bottom of the tin and bake it on a tray.

You could also bake it in 2 loaf tins, or 1 loaf tin and a muffin tin (then you can use baking paper to line, which we will discuss).

If you only have 1 loaf tin, we have given the quantities for a half batch of cake batter.

WHAT TO PREPARE BEFORE WE START:

TURN YOUR OVEN TO 180 C/355 F ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE YOU START WATCHING.

Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, is here and many in our Jewish community will be fasting from just before sunset this evening for 25 hours.⁠

Some of us (🙋‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️)have spent the last week obsessing about what meal we will eat to start the fast (not too salty to avoid thirst, low GI to hopefully allay those inevitable hunger pangs, do we go traditional or not...)⁠
And then there is a completely new conversation about what to eat to break the fast (cinnamon buns or babke, a full meal of brisket and potatoes, a lighter option with pasta and fish and then the inevitable comment 'I could just have a cup of tea and a piece of cake and go to bed' (which of course no-one seems to ever do)⁠

So many debates going on! ⁠

We hope whatever you choose is exactly what you need to make it an easy fast, and on the other side is exactly what you need so you don't finish the meal holding your belly and moaning😜 (we've all been there).⁠

We wish everyone chag sameach, g’mar chatima Tova, and may you have an easy fast!⁠

Love to all,⁠
Lisa, Jaks, Merelyn and Natty ⁠
