L'shana Tovah (Happy Jewish New Year 5781), Watchers!

Besides Shabbos, this coming Friday is Erev Rosh Hashannah, the Jewish New Year and start of the 10 Days of Awe.

Yesterday I was a Zoom participant in Eastside Torah Center - Chabad's Grand Rosh Hashannah Challah Bake. It was fun socializing virtually, and I enjoyed the learning and the demonstration of the simanim platter while our dough proofed.

Of course, when it came time for shaping, I did my own thing. Both designs are from The Challah Prince on Instagram. The one on the left is the basic 4-strand round braid, only he makes 8-strands and put two side by side in each strand pattern. The "star" shape on the right is 5 mini 4-strand braid challot, curved together in the center and then fanned out to make the circle.

I did the second rise overnight in the refrigerator, so I think they over proofed a little and I lost some of the design on each. Egg wash to bake, and since they're for Rosh Hashannah, honey wash as soon as they were removed from the oven.

For a first attempt at each design, I'm quite happy!

*cross posted*

Last night's festive meal's dessert was a new recipe from the Kosher Keto Ladies Facebook group: a keto-fied "honey" cake. Other than a few technical baking difficulties, as I am truly not a baker, it came out great!


The "honey" cake fresh out of the oven.


Turned out of the pan.


Dusted with confectioners Lakanto monkfruit sweetener blend.


Autopsy shot.


Since I am inexperienced with making bundt cakes, I don't think I baked it quite long enough, allowed it to cool long enough, and tried to unmold it on a wire cooling rack rather than a solid surface. So, the honey cake crumbled.
Since it crumbled in sections, we served it with Halo Top ice cream , strawberries, and sugar free whipped cream .


The typed up recipe with my notes. Shared with permission from Lisa Libman of the Kosher Keto Ladies Facebook group.

Happy Jewish New Year!

The cake is beautiful!
favorite pictures are "just out of the oven" (love getting to see the texture) and "autopsy shot."

Yay, I've been wishing for an excuse to make a honey cake. This is a very fitting excuse!

I'm thinking this one: https://prettysimplesweet.com/honey-cake/
