My husband and I are always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate Jewish traditions into our interfaith home. Rich with apples, carrots and sweet potato, this sweet and spicy cake is perfect for Rosh Hashana or any fall holiday.—Molly Haendler, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Toasted pecans and coconut take this moist cake from good to great, but it's the cream cheese frosting that makes it truly extraordinary. Thank goodness it's a makeover, because you'll definitely want seconds! —Christy White, Oxford, Mississippi
At the campground where my husband and I have a trailer, the campers hold an auction of baked goods every Fourth of July. I donated this moist Bundt cake last year and it brought in the highest bid! I often use black walnuts in place of regular walnuts because they add a special flavor.
"Nothing could be simpler or more delicious than this moist apple cake," relates Reba Savoie of Roswell, New Mexico. It's easy to create the four-ingredient treat with a spice cake mix...and even easier on your pocketbook at just 18 cents per piece.
When my sister Catherine made an apple cake for me, I asked her for the recipe. I made it a short time later and added some pears to the recipe, since we have pear trees on our acreage. The cake was very moist and tasted so good. Now every time I make it, people want my recipe. —Mary Ann Lees, Centreville, Alabama
