I have a friend who is Jewish and always makes this incredible stuffed bundt cake for Rosh Hashanah and I finally got the recipe from her but I did make it a little different than hers. I have also made this cake stuffed w/ dried blueberries, cranberries and cranberry juice. People always comment on how they love to bite into the "surprise" in the middle.
