Mayim Bialik Shares Vegan Honey Cake Recipe for Rosh Hashanah

September 13, 2012

Mayim Bialik took to her Kveller blog to share a recipe for Rosh Hashanah. As a vegan, Bialik shared her own version of a honey cake for the Jewish holiday, "which begins at sundown this Sunday, September 16th." Check out the recipe below!

2 egg equivalents (I use Ener-G egg replacer)
3/4 cup agave
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups sifted flour
1 cup strong coffee (I use Turkish)

Combine egg replacer, agave, sugar and oil.
Mix in dry ingredients, alternating with coffee. Beat 5 minutes.
Pour into greased pan (I like 9″ round) – (usually makes enough batter for two 8-inch round).
Bake at 375 degrees until done. I generally check it after 20 minutes, then every 10 minutes until a pick inserted in the middle comes out clean–roughly 40 minutes.
