When Miriam of Israeli Kitchen asked me if Iâ€™d like to do a guest post on her wonderful blog I was truly honored. Miriam has lived in Israel for 33 years and is full of knowledge about Israeli and kosher cuisine. She makes her own dandelion beer and fruit wine, bread and flavored oils. Miriam loves markets as much as I do and warmly welcomed me into the world of Anglo food bloggers in Israel. Weâ€™d been emailing for almost a year before we finally had the chance to meet in person at a dinner with cookbook author Gil Marks, and were really able to spend some quality time together at the Sommelier Wine Expo in Tel Aviv. Sheâ€™s even coming to visit in Beâ€™er Sheva (as soon as the trains are back up and running!) to see what our shuk has to offer.
I discovered this Cinnamon Bun cake during a brief stint photographing contest finalists for The Joy of Kosher website. I wasnâ€™t entirely sure how it would come out. I mean, who doesnâ€™t love a good cinnamon bun, but does it really need to be turned into a cake? Well, let me allow the fact that it was gone in two days flat speak for itself. And thereâ€™s just two of us. We ate it for dessert, and for breakfast, and as an afternoon snack. I think it makes a perfect holiday breakfast, something pretty and festive to place on the table.
You’ll have to head over to Israeli Kitchen for the recipe! Tell Miriam I said hi 🙂
