Honey, Greek Yogurt & Apple Bundt Cake (or muffins)! {Gluten Free! Healthy!}

Honey, Greek Yogurt & Apple Bundt Cake (or muffins)! {Gluten Free! Healthy!}

I knew one thing, and one thing only, about Rosh Hashanah when I attended my first ever celebration of the Jewish New Year today… and it was that at some point we would be eating honey and apples.

A dear friend was lovely enough to invite us over to his grandparents house for their annual family gathering, and I (of course) wouldn’t dream of showing up empty handed.  The party was in Beverly Hills and I knew there would be at least 20 guests in attendance, so I needed to think of something crowd pleasing, appealing to the jewish palate, and organic/gluten free (did you miss the Bev Hills part?).  And so the honey, greek yogurt & apple bundt cake was born.
