I grew up celebrating Christmas, but since marrying my Jewish husband, I've become grateful for Hannukah, too. It's such a beautiful celebration of light, and it really helps me embrace the darkest days of the year. Last year, I decided I wanted to start some traditions to integrate the two holidays and just generally celebrate the season. Being a baker, I came up with a cake, of course!

I made this dense, moist cake with apples and almonds on the Winter Solstice last year, and we all ate a piece after dinner that night. It was a simple and cozy way to mark the longest night of the year — and has become a new tradition. Enjoy!
