Editor’s note: This post is part of a series highlighting recipes used by the White House Staff for the Jewish High Holidays.
This is a recipe that my great grandmother, taught my grandmother who taught my mother who taught me. It is a delicious cake and I use the batter for all of my cakes. I also make it the traditional way every year for Rosh Hashanah. One minor glitch- it used to rise 7 or 8 inches but since my mother passed away 9 years ago it hasn't risen more than 3 inches. If you get it to rise you should take a picture and email it to the American Jewish Outreach Team, by clicking on the “Contact Us” tab above! :)
