Honey cake

Yields: 6 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 30 Mins Cook Time: 8 Mins Total Time: 38 Mins

This is an easy cake to make that will satisfy every honey lover. Don’t wait  and get baking

This cake is an adaptation to the old Medovnik Russian honey cake.  The cake is made of layers of honey cakes that are soft and moist with a honey sour cream. The cake is easy to make but take a bit of time to set. Depending of the honey you use the flavour of your cake will be different.  Here I am using a Redgum honey from Pemberton (Western Australia).

Honey is for sure the oldest natural sweetener found on earth since the beginning of times. Honey is recognized to have healing properties the help our organism to feel better and fight flu symptoms.

If you wish to have more layers just separate this recipe into 2 trays and have thinner layers. Bake for 6 min and let it cool down.

The cream recipe should be exactly the same.

I hope you enjoy it as well as i did making it
