Beautiful, festive, and of course delicious cake! I share another recipe for honey cake. It is prepared quickly enough, not counting the time for cooling the dough ) Cream with sour cream, and honey cakes are just the very tenderness - soft, lush... The recipe for the cakes assembled on the Internet, and very happy with the result! The dough is plastic , and after cooling it does not stick at all. I advise you to prepare such a cake for the holidays!
Prepare the ingredients for the test. We will sift the flour in advance, so it will be saturated with oxygen, which will make the baking more lush. We'll get butter, eggs, and honey. You will also need regular and vanilla sugar.
In a heatproof bowl, combine butter, honey, sugar (regular and vanilla), a pinch of salt and eggs. We put the bowl on a water bath, and stirring, we achieve uniformity.
As soon as the sugar and butter have dispersed , remove the bowl from the bath, add the soda and stir. The mass will begin to foam. Stir for another minute. Then gradually add the flour with baking powder.
Knead the soft dough, which is very important not to clog with flour! Otherwise, the cakes will not turn out so lush. The finished dough is removed in the cold, at least for an hour. As a result, the dough does not stick, it is very elastic and pliable.
While the dough is resting, prepare the cream. We will need sour cream , fat content from 25 %, cottage cheese, butter and powdered sugar to taste. I also added vanilla sugar.
To make the cream snow- white to begin with, beat the soft butter with powdered sugar until white and fluffy. Then add to it cheese and sour cream, as well as vanilla. Mix well and beat until a rich cream. Before assembling the cake , it is better to put the cream in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
The dough has cooled. Divide it in half, and each part is rolled out in a layer, 2-3 mm thick. my cake will be square 15x15 cm. From one layer, I will make two squares.
Then we prick the rolled dough with a fork and send it to the oven preheated to 200 degrees for 5-6 minutes . Don't overdo it!
Ready-made cake immediately cut to size, also from scraps, I made stars.
Cool the cakes.
Start assembling the cake. I put the cream in a pastry bag with a nozzle - it 's more beautiful, but you can do it without a nozzle.
Cream is deposited on the entire surface of the cake.
Next, put the second cake, repeat with the cream. And between the cream "roses", I added ready-made cherry jam ( you can use any other). We also make the third cake. And the fourth cake just spread cream, no jam. Decorate as desired, I have prepared stars and meringue.
Our birthday cake is ready! Enjoy a delicious tea party for All!
