I love a good honey cake, but I do not like how long it usually takes to make one. Here I have a much simpler easier recipes for a small honey cake. Perfect for after dinner dessert. If you want to make this cake for a large party you can always double on the recipe.
Cake layers Ingredients:
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2. Cup of sour cream
- 1 tea spoon baking powder
- 1/2 tea spoon baking soda
- 3 table spoons of honey
- 2 stick of soft butter
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 1/2 cup of sour cream.
- 1 cup of toasted walnuts
- Cake baked edges
- With a mixer beat together soft butter with sugar.
- Beat in eggs one at a time.
- In a cup mix together sour cream with baking soda and baking powder. ( sour cream activates the baking soda)
- Add sour cream to the batter beating it till mixed.
- Add honey.
- Slowly little by little add flour and beat at low speed.
- Take a large baking sheet or use two medium baking sheets, butter the sheet and align with parchment paper. ( I use a butter spray for this )
- Spread the batter evenly and bake at 350 for 20min
- Let it cool .
- To make the cream , beat soft butter with condensed milk, than add sour cream and beat till combined.
- When cake is cooled flip it upside down onto the same baking sheet. Gently peal parchment paper.
- Trim all corners for even look.
- Cut the cake into three rectangular even sizes or cut into fourth how ever you prefer the cake to look.
- Spread a good amount of cream on layer place the second one on top and spread more cream. Keep repeating it for last layer. Cover the entire cake with cream . It is ok if it drips just make sure layers aren’t sliding. This is why it’s good to do this in the same baking sheet to prevent the mess. Refrigerate while you prepare the topping.
- Bake the edge pieces of the cake for about 5-7 more min with walnuts.
- Let them cool and then pulse them in a food processor till becomes crumbs.
- Top the cake entire cake with crumbs you can use your hand to press down the crumbs into the cake to get them to stick to the cake.
