Passover Honey Cake

This is a modern traditional Passover Cake. The shape of the Bundt cake represents the Mountain of the Lord, the milk and honey represent the promised land, the nuts represent the Torah given at Mount Sinai that one must chew and meditate on and the sprinkled coconut or white icing sugar represents the Manna; God's miraculous provision in the desert. This is a fun cake to make for children allowing to retell the story of the Exodus, how God cared for His people. Just a quick note, when you are in a pinch, you can use a golden yellow cake mix and replace the fluids with Honey and milk.

I loved that this cake is not overly sweet - it has the wonderful sweet taste of honey. I had a hard time limiting myself to one slice! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
