HONEY CAKE RECIPE (MEDOVIK) RUSSIAN-STORE COPYCAT

INGREDIENTS
BATTER
  1. 3 eggs
  2. 3/4 cup of raw smooth honey not the sugary kind
  3. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  4. 2 teaspoons baking soda
  5. 1 tbsp vinegar

CREAM:
  1. 1 8oz pkg Cool Whip, thawed
  2. 1/2 cup sour cream
  3. 2 tbsp condensed milk

SYRUP:
  1. 1/4 cup sugar
  2. 1/2 cup hot water

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut out 4 pieces of parchment paper, overhanging an inverted 18" by 13" baking sheet.
  • Beat together the eggs and honey until light brown and frothy (about 2 min.)
  • Dissolve the baking soda in vinegar and add to the egg mixture, along with the flour. Beat all together just until combined.
  • Place about 1/2 cup of batter onto an inverted baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the mixture as thin as possible reaching the corners of the baking sheet and then bake for 7 minutes (batter should be spread out to the size of a 16" by 11-inch rectangle.) Repeat with remaining layers.
  • Carefully peel off the parchment paper and cut out 2 circles from each cake layer using a plate (about 7 1/2" in diameter.) You should have a total of 8 circles.
