At a McMillan Coffee Morning last week I had a delicious cake labelled as Russian Honey Cake. I immediately trawled the internet for recipes and made this, which while delicious, was nothing like the cake. People need to work on their referencing.
Russian Honey Cake is made of layers of biscuit like cake with honey filling. It's pretty tasty, a little bit like millionaire shortbread without the chocolate.
2 beaten eggs, 4tbl spoons honey, 2oz butter, 1 can condensed milk. Heat all of the ingredients in a pan and bring to the boil until thick. Leave to cool before assembly.
Cake:2 beaten eggs, 1 cup caster sugar, 2 tbl spoons honey, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 cup butter, 3-4 cups plain flour.
Mix the sugar and the eggs. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add egg-sugar mixture, honey and baking powder. Heat until foamy. Add flour until the dough is not sticky. Divide it into five parts, roll out into circles 1/4" thick and cook for 7 minutes at 180 degrees. Cool.
Cut the biscuits into circles. I used a saucepan lid for a mold. Then layer the cake with biscuits and cream.
Put the remenants of the biscuits into a blender and cover the cake in breadcrumbs.
Leave in the fridge for 6 hours to become gooey.
