Of course, the cake Medovik (he's Honey) knows everything from childhood, even if they have not tried it properly: known since Soviet times, he must be saturated with sour cream and smell of honey (at least, this should be Medovik in accordance with GOST). I still do not dare to attribute it to GOST - firstly, I moved away from the classic recipe a little, in order to make the cake less sweet, and the cream did "compose" at all, combining several recipes known to me. Medovik turned out very tender, soaked in 200% :), no sneakiness (lovers of moderately sweet / unsweetened cakes will appreciate!), Only a light hint of honey and a fairy cream, also absolutely lean and light, in short, the most delicious honey cake. Simple recipe in the above enclose proof :)
I must say that all the honey cake that I ate before, alas, does not claim the title of your favorite cake. Primarily because of the sweetness or "himoznogo" flavor, which is especially important for cakes from the shops / cafés. Or just seemed primitive taste: honey cakes and sour cream, as for me - nothing special. Sometimes the cake is not well impregnated (or tasteless cream), which also makes it a not entirely successful.
My honey cake, bold and indiscreet I can say :), the most delicious and unusual of all, what I ate! Excited were all the guests who tried it. It was not indifferent! So I just have to tell you about the most delicious honey cake, a simple recipe which, I hope, will always be in your bookmarks!
Before you go to the recipe, I will explain about the cream: Ideally, it should be swept away, some do it 50: 50 with butter, some - on the principle of ganache (heavy cream + oil + chocolate), the options are many. But as for me, this is a very simple, either zhirnovato. Although, of course, the taste and color ...)
My cream honey cake from the simplest ingredients, is a cross between custard and cream (do not let that scare!). It turns out very tender, nepritornym, texture smooth, moderately thick, ideal for soaking the cake; flavor - caramel and honey! As for me, this is the best possible cream.
In short, the most delicious honey cake: a simple recipe - excellent results! Cooking must!
