Honey Cake (Medovik)
Hey. Belated happy new year to all my lovely readers. I am back again after a very long gaaap that I have ever taken from blogging world!!! Due to some or other reason, I had to stand away from this. Anyways hope I will be able to post regularly from now on.
I am here with a delicious recipe – Honey Cake. Its an age old Russian cake, called here as ‘Medovik’ (in Russian). This is very tender and delicate cake, which is so rich and delicious.You have to prepare the cake before a day you serve it,both the cream and cake will pair very well and will tastes amazing. The Star ingredient in frosting is Delce De Leche (Cooked condensed mik), so you could imagine how yummy this cake would be!!
This was in my to do recipe list for quite sometimes. Whenever I see the honey cake pieces here in bakery shops, used to carve for a portion. Never bought it thinking I will make myself. I rarely put my hands on cake with frosting because we both can’t have it completely. Thats how making honey cake also took this long. So when we invited a friend for lunch, I thought of making Honey cake as a dessert.Served them after lunch, packed him some pieces of cake, we kept few for ourselves and I have given away some for my miklady. Got good comment from hubby jaan and his friend. He had it from outside many times and said this is how it usually tastes.Most happiest part was milklady took recipe from me saying that which came out really well ;). I was so thrilled when I heard from her.
I am warning you, this is not for someone who is dieting, because you will keep on eating once you start having it. Its a super delicious cake with ingredients easily available. Anyways, lets see the recipe.
