Necessary ingredients:

  • eggs — 3 PCs
  • sugar — 600 g
  • butter — 250 g
  • flour — 600 g
  • honey - 5 tbsp. l.
  • soda — 1 tsp.
  • sour cream (15,20% fat) — 0.5 l
  • of condensed milk - 360 ml

Method of preparation:

  1. Honey cake we will cook in a water bath. Prepare in advance a pot larger and another a smaller volume. A small pot should stay on the big through. Type water and put on the stove to heat up.
  2. Start to cook the dough. In a small saucepan whisk the eggs and 300 grams of sugar in a thick foam. The sugar should completely melt. Add in foam honey, 50 g of butter and soda (burnt!), place in a water bath. Reduce the flame to medium level and ensure that water does not spill out during boiling. Soon the test will become more and more. Minutes 13-14 start adding the flour in small portions, stirring to eliminate lumps. Next, knead the dough already on the table, adding the remaining flour.
  3. The dough should have a taut, beautiful brown caramel color. Divide it into equal portions (5-7) and put in the cold for half an hour. Pre-wrap in plastic wrap, so it is not saturated with the smell of foreign foods.
  4. Start baking cakes. Each piece of dough roll out and the usual lid of the pot peel off the future shape of the cake, but not for trimming. Bake on a sheet covered with parchment paper for about 3 minutes at a temperature of 180 degrees. If the finished cakes bubbles form, then immediately cut them with a knife. As soon as you pull the dough from the oven, peel off the extra pieces around the edges, we will use later.
  5. Proceed to the preparation of creams for the cake. First whisk the sour cream with the remaining sugar. Use the mixer or blender.
  6. Whisk the condensed milk with soft butter (200 g).
  7. Proceed to the final step — the formation of the cake. To the bottom layer of the cake is well soaked, first pour into the dish a little cream and on top put the cake. Pour each cake creams, alternating in any order.
  8. Crush them scraps from cakes or pollicie in a blender. Thickly sprinkle over the cake top and sides.

Put the honey cake in a dry place and leave the clock at 10. This time is enough to make it well soaked with creams, became soft and juicy. Bon Appetit!

A couple of useful recommendations for the owners:

  • if in anticipation of the holiday you have lot of things to make blanks for the cake in advance. Store cakes can be about two days at room temperature, and creams, whisk together the day before cooking
  • it is important that the foam of eggs and sugar it came out very dense. It is unlikely this will be achieved with the help of a whisk, so use a mixer.
