When Amy’s dad, Rick, came up with Rick’s Recipe—tehina and honey—he didn’t realize he was reviving an ancient potion for youth, beauty and strength, a perfect combination for Rosh Hashanah.
Add this cake to your menu for any holiday or Shabbat for an Israeli touch. Deceptively simple to make, the cake’s rich flavor will please any vegan and yet it’s also the perfect complement to a meat meal.
