Dessert for traditional Rosh Hashanna dinner

I am having traditional dinner, gefilta fish, matzoh ball soup, and brisket. I would like some ideas for dessert other than the traditional dry honey cake. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

  1. How about an apple cake?

    There's a good recipe for a Honey Glazed Apple Cake here:

    And there's a good recipe for a Moist and Tender Honey-Applesauce Cake here:

    Or how about this Apple Plum Raisin Strudel from the Canadian Living Test Kitchens:

    1. Apple cake is a good suggestion.
      Also, try another honey cake recipe - one that comes w/ good recommendations - because all honey cakes were NOT created equal.

      1. Thanks for the information. Have a sweet year.

          1. Thought matzoh balls and honey cakes were for Passover, no?

            How about a Bavarian Apple Torte?

            Ceciarchiata or taiglach are pretty "traditional" for Rosh Hashanna. That's what I make.

              Matzoh balls are traditional for Passover, honey cake for Rosh Hashanna.
