Cooking honey cake (without cake rolls):

Step 1: prepare the eggs with sugar.

We take a bowl and use a knife to break the eggs into it. Add sugar to the container and begin to whip our components using a hand whisk or mixer. Beat these two ingredients until a homogeneous mass is formed and until sugar is completely dissolved.

Step 2: making the dough.

We take a medium-sized pan and put honey, oil and soda in it. All components are mixed well with a tablespoon and put on a steam bath. To prepare a steam bath, you need to take a saucepan in size such that a container with our ingredients comes into it freely. Pour into it 3/4 volume of water in such a way that the liquid does not rise strongly in the pan when we lower our container with the ingredients for the preparation of the dough into it. We put the pot of water on a medium heat and after the water in it boils, make a small fire and, holding the hot containers with tacks, carefully put the container with ingredients inside it. With a tablespoon, mix everything very carefully until the oil and honey are completely dissolved. In this case, a homogeneous mass should be obtained. Turn off the fire and, using the kitchen tack, we take out a container with ready mass from the pot with boiling water. Let the creamy-honey mixture cool slightly. And now add the beaten eggs with sugar. Mix well again with a spoon. After using a measuring cup, pour the flour into our mixture and mix everything thoroughly with a whisk until smooth. Attention: so that flour lumps do not form, it is advisable to constantly beat the mixture with improvised equipment at the time when we add the flour. The dough should consistency remind us of thick sour cream, in this form we will bake it. After that, wrap the container with batter with cling film and put in the refrigerator for 2-3 hoursso that it is infused.

Step 3: prepare the cakes from the dough.

We take out the container with the dough from the refrigerator, and let it stand at room temperature 1 hourso that it is saturated with the smell of honey. Turn on the oven and heat it to a temperature 180 ° C. At this temperature, we will cook our cakes. We take a baking sheet, cover it with baking paper and grease it with vegetable or butter using a pastry brush. Then on this surface we place a rim from a detachable form. Through 2 full tablespoons pour the batter from the pan onto a baking sheet. It must be remembered that from time to time it is worth stirring the general mixture with improvised equipment to maintain the necessary consistency of the test. Bake the cake for 7-10 minutes to golden brown. When the cake is ready, take out the baking sheet from the oven, using the tacks. Remove the rim from the detachable shape and shift it to the side. Using a knife, cut the paper around the finished cake and transfer it with it to a separate dish. Covering the baking sheet again with oiled pastry paper, repeat the baking process. We should succeed 5-6 cakes. Attention: bake the last cake a little stronger than the rest. It is useful to us for decorating the cake.

Step 4: prepare the prunes.

We take a small bowl with prunes and pour boiling water for 10 minutes. After the dried fruits are slightly softened, drain the water and wipe the ingredient dry with a paper towel. We shift the prunes onto a cutting board and chop it into small pieces with a knife. After - transfer to a free plate.

Step 5: prepare the nuts.

To powder, you need to chop the nuts. To do this, just chop them with a knife on a cutting board into small pieces and then transfer them to a container separately from the cream and prunes.

Step 6: prepare the cream.

To make our cream airy, it is very important, before we combine the cream with the rest of the ingredients, beat them well. To do this, spread the cream in a bowl and whip them with a whisk.

Step 7: prepare the cream.

Pour sour cream into a bowl and add 5 tablespoons powdered sugar. Using a whisk, beat two ingredients well. After that, using a tablespoon, add whipped cream and again, whisk everything well until smooth.

Step 8: prepare a honey cake (without rolling cake layers).

Attention: Before we grease the cakes with cream, we need to remove baking paper from each. So, take a wide dish. Its diameter should be larger than the diameter of the cakes. We spread the first cake, and evenly smearing the cream on its entire surface with a spoon, sprinkle it with chopped prunes. On the second cake, after lubricating it with cream, spread the chopped nuts. Similarly, we perform the same procedure with the rest of the cakes, with the only difference being that we alternate the ingredients: prunes - walnuts. The last fifth cake is generously greased with cream. But the sixth cake, which we will turn into a crumb with a blender, will add a little powder, adding a little chopped nut to it. Do not forget the sides of the cake: they are also sprinkled with test crumbs. Cakes should be well saturated with cream. Therefore, we put our honey cake in the refrigerator on the lower shelf and leave it in this state 1-3 hours.

Step 8: serve the honey cake (without rolling cakes).

Immediately after the cake is infused and soaked in delicious airy cream, it can be taken out of the refrigerator and served. And it doesn’t really matter for what special occasion you cook this dish. After all, treat yourself to a slice of this wonderful pastry, washed down with hot beloved tea, you can on any day, not necessarily a holiday. Enjoy your meal!
