Honey Cake for Parshat Vayelech

In this week’s parsha Hashem talks to Moshe about the land of milk and honey, so we are making a delicious honey cake.


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • Powdered sugar, for serving

And all you need to do is:

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment and grease with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda.

2. In another large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat butter and honey together until butter is smooth and mixture is light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add almond extract. Add dry ingredients and beat until just barely combined, then add sour cream and beat until just combined.

3. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 35 minutes. Let cool.

Serve as is or with a dusting of powdered sugar.

Shana Tova!!
