Jewish apple cake is a dense cake made with apples and sold mostly in Pennsylvania in the United States.[1] Apples (or quinces in Israel) are common in Ashkenazi cooking and are a part of the tradition of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). Jewish apple cake is also non-dairy, and it may therefore be eaten with meals containing meat, in accordance with Jewish laws of kashrut.
