- raspberries and currants — 100 g for decoration.
It will take two and a half hours to create a big, sweet, tasty delicacy. Caloric content of 100 g of delicious cake with berries equals 323 kcal.
The principle of making honey cakes is quite simple. The liquid part of the dough should be prepared in a water bath. You need to take two eggs, drive them into a smaller pot. Pour a glass of sugar in them and grind.
After adding the oil and the mass is sent to a water bath, often stirring until all particles are completely dissolved. Then enter the baking soda and remove a thick mass from the bath when foam appears.
Next, add flour (about 3 cups), knead the dough. It will need to be divided into several parts, of which roll out layers, cut in a circle with a diameter of 20-23 cm. Each cake and baking from it bake in an oven at a temperature of 180 ° for five minutes.
Strawberries should be crushed in a blender, adding sugar to it. Boil until syrup and cool. Lubricate all cakes with strawberry syrup for impregnation. To create the custard mixes the remaining sugar, eggs and one hundred grams of flour.
After thorough mixing, the thick flour mass is sent to a water bath, milk is slowly poured into it, and oil is added. The cream is cooked to a creamy thick consistency and cooled.
The formation of «Medovika» is as follows — all the cakes soaked in strawberries are smeared with cream and put on each other, forming layers of dessert. Crushed crumbs from baked remnants of cake layers are sprinkled on the entire perimeter of the cake. The top of honey delicacy is decorated with currants and raspberries to taste.
For most of the desserts that are made at home, only fresh produce should be chosen. To make the cake tasty, the dairy products included in its composition must be fatty. And experienced confectioners advise:
- Soda, added to the mass, preparing in a water bath is not extinguished. In another version of the preparation of the dough, quenching should be carried out exclusively with lemon juice
- Load the cakes only in the oven, which is well heated to 180 ° and above (up to 210 °), and bake until the first ripeness appears, but be sure to pierce them with a fork in several places;
- The cream should not be not tasty lumps, so during its creation you need to constantly stir the cream mass, and then whisk with a whisk while adding oil;
- Honey cake is soaked in custard faster in heat. You can also reduce the time of this procedure by smearing the layers with a still warm, hot cream.
Instead of milk in the cream you can use condensed milk, reducing the amount of sugar, or sour cream. To make impregnation easier, milk is often replaced with filtered water. You can decorate the honey cake by making chocolate honeycombs on the surface of the dessert, choosing juicy fresh berries.
