Russian Honey Cake
The Russian honey cake, known as medovik, dates back from the era of the Russian empire. Made by a young chef in the in 17 century that sought to impress the Empress Elizabeth Alexeievna who allegedly hated honey. One day, the chef unknowingly presented this cake to the empress, who was delightfully impressed. As one of the most time consuming cakes to make, the Russian cake is soft, crusty and perfectly sweet with layers of cream for a tangy twist. Highly addictive and highly delicious.
Best enjoyed chilled.
