Cooking a honey cake:

Step 1: prepare the eggs.

Break the eggs into a deep plate. Using a mixer or hand whisk, beat the ingredients until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Step 2: prepare the basis for the test.

To prepare the dough, first of all, we need to melt the margarine. And this is best done in a water bath. To do this, pour a little ordinary water into a large pot and put on medium heat. Then we place the middle pan in the first container so that it does not drown in it, but is fixed with handles on the sides of the large pan. Attention: To do this, it is best to choose the right equipment before preparing a honey cake. And now we spread margarine and sugar in an average container. Using a tablespoon, constantly mix the ingredients until they completely dissolve and mix, and there are no sugar crystals on the walls of the dishes. After that, add honey to the mixture and again mix everything well until a homogeneous mass is formed. Then pour the beaten chicken eggs into the mixture. Important: do not forget to constantly mix everything well with a tablespoon. Subsequently, we should get an elastic homogeneous mixture. Pour baking soda into the container with the next component, but simultaneously continue to mix everything with a spoon. After a few seconds, the mass will begin to foam. This soda has reacted with other components, and we are on the right track. Only after that we turn off the burner and rearrange the middle pan with the mixture on a cutting board so that it cools down a bit.

Step 3: the first step in making honey cake.

Pour flour into our mass in small portions, while whisking everything with either a tablespoon or a hand whisk. When it will be difficult to mix the components with improvised equipment, transfer the test mixture to the prepared kitchen table, pre-powdered with flour, and continue to knead the dough with your hands until it turns out to be cool and slightly sticky. Then give the dough a rounded shape and use a knife to cut it into two halves. Using a rolling pin, we roll each test piece into a layer, thick no more than 5 millimeters. Then we cover the baking sheet with baking paper and put the pancake on it. And now with our hands we try to stretch the dough to the edges of the mold so that it completely covers the baking sheet. Bake in preheated up to 250 ° C oven for 5-10 minutes. Attention: watch the process of cooking cake, as the time primarily depends on the operation of your oven. If the cake becomes light brown with a golden surface, then the dough is ready and it is time to replace it with a second raw cake.

Step 4: prepare the cream.

Meanwhile, while the cake is baked, we will make a cream. To do this, pour sour cream in a deep bowl and sprinkle it with sugar. Using a hand whisk or mixer, beat the ingredients until the sugar ingredient is completely dissolved.

Step 5: the second step in the preparation of honey cake.

Cakes and cream are ready! Therefore, we proceed to the final stage of the preparation of honey cake. So, we shift the cake onto a clean kitchen table, holding the main ingredient with baking paper. While it is hot, with a knife we ​​cut off irregularities along the edge. Then we shift the cake in the same way onto a flat serving dish, but we already remove the paper, since we no longer need it. While we shifted it from place to place, the cake managed to cool down a bit, so it can be greased with sour cream. To do this, use a tablespoon and generously lubricate the entire surface of the baked dough with cream. Then we cover all this beauty with a second, also processed, cake and again we generously grease the surface of the dough with cream. You can leave the honey cake two-layer, or you can increase it in size. To do this, with a knife we ​​cut the test layer exactly in the middle and spread the halves of the cakes on top of each other. We do not throw away the cuttings from the cakes, but put them in the blender bowl and grind them on 3-5 speeds so that we get small crumbs. Sprinkle the top and sides of the cakes with this crumb and put it in the refrigerator, preferably all night, so that the honey cake can soak.

Step 6: serve the honey cake.

When the pastries are soaked in sour cream and infused in the refrigerator, we get it out of there and use a knife to cut the cakes into small rectangular pieces. Immediately after this, honey cake can be served with tea and surprise guests with such delicious, juicy and beautiful pastries. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - In addition to crumbs from cakes, cakes can be sprinkled with nut crumbs. Then the pastries are also very tasty with a delicate nutty flavor.

- - If you do not have a blender at hand to grind the remains of cakes, then you can use the usual coarse grater. Just do it in a deep bowl so that the pieces that will fly off do not fall to the floor.

- - If it is inconvenient for you to mix the ingredients for the dough with a spoon, then you can use either a hand whisk or an ordinary fork.

- - For the preparation of honey cake, take only the highest grade flour and proven brands, since the quality of baking depends on this ingredient.
