Our Apple Cake Featured in New York Times

Apple Cake Featured in New York Times

A couple of weeks before Rosh Hashana, we got a call from Florence Fabricant of the New York Times. She was interested in our apple cake for her column in the Dining In section of the Times. She asked if we could please send her one. “Of course, how many would you like?” was my response. Freshly baked and wrapped, the cake was whisked off by Fedex to arrive at her home the next morning. Needless to say, we were thrilled when she called a few days later to inform us that the cake would indeed be featured in the paper on September 15. It was a very exciting–and busy–time, indeed. After hundreds of  apple cakes baked, wrapped and shipped, we were finally able to relax and enjoy the holiday! Thanks to all who read the article and purchased the cake.

    The apple cake is unbelievaby delicious! We ordered it for Rosh Hashana and could not stop eating it. The whole family loved it. Good for you and thanks to the NY Times for sharing it will us. Looking forward to seeing what you have for Hanukkah!

    My daughter went to a Jewish day school and for years we referred to what she learned as the “challah curriculum”. She may not have learned two plus two but the girl could knead and braid like a pro! And we benefited also at home since on Fridays she came home with a warm, yummy-smelling mound of braided dough clenched in her little paint-covered fist.It was the highlight of our week!

    Now she’s older and learning her times tables . . . and I get my Challah, cold and paint-free, from the store.

    I miss the good old days.
