Apple Crumble Cake

August 28, 2022 | by Daniel Digilov

This simple apple crumble cake is the perfect start to a sweet new year.

Apples dipped in honey are one of the most well known symbols of Rosh Hashanah. Not only do we like to dip apples in honey to symbolize a sweet new year, but we like to make desserts out of apples and/or honey. The best is when we combine the two and that is what we did with this incredible cake.

Did you know that it’s not just apples and honey that symbolize a sweet new year? We also include beets, dates, pomegranate and more. Get more Jewish food thoughts here.
