Let me state for the record that this Russian Honey Cake was probably the best cake I’ve ever eaten, and certainly the best cake I’ve ever made. It’s not an especially fast, or easy bake, but believe me, as you’re enjoying this, there will be no regrets. Not about the effort it takes, at least. The calories might be another story.

Why is it, every time I watch your shows... I think I'm back in Sunday School?

2:50 an easy rule of thumb for this sort of thing: if you stick your finger in and it feels cool, you need to increase the heat, if it's Jacuzzi temperature it's perfect. If you stick your finger in and immediately issue a high pitched pterodactyl squeal then you've gone to far and need to pull it off the heat for a bit. For safety reasons I suggest using a candy thermometer, a laser thermometer, or a husbands finger.
Can you use creme fraiche instead of sour cream for the filling?

Intetesting you say how the cake absorbs all those good feels as you spread icing. And those are transferred to them who will enjoy the cake. I think you're alluding to the spiritual battle though we can't see, is every bit as real as the air we breathe. I see exactly what you're saying though on the other end of the spectrum as I watch shows like Masterchef. Where every other minute someone is crying or cursing, or getting upset or saying how that particulat dish reminds them of a deceased loved one, or how Masterchef is their only chance to have a decent life, etc. Appreciate your relaxed and humorous style. Peace of Lord Jesus upon you and yours

Made one and it was delishious. My cake layers turned out just a tad dry...what should I change to add moisture without changing flavour?

Where did you get this recipe? Nobody never adds cinnamon to this cake! Never! And nobody boils honey separate. It’s crazy wrong recipe.

That does look good. But get a pkg of Graham crackers, use 1 of three pkgs. To crush up. Then add about a cup of melted butter, a cup of Brown sugar, a cup of chopped nuts (your preference), about 8 oz. of crushed pineapple and mix well. Then lay 3 Graham crackers beside each other, then one at the top I think it is. Then put a layer of the mix, then cover with another layer of Graham crackers, then put more mix on top of this, then cover with Graham crackers again. Then set in frigerarator so it gets cold. Then eat and enjoy. Tastes better than you think it would. It might be 4 Graham crackers wide side by side. Then two perpendicular on top of the row of four. Where you want the mix kind of wet. It can help to add a little cream, I bet a little maple syrup would be good. Where the Graham crackers laid out absorb the moisture and flavor. Do Russians have Maple syrup from maple trees or do they have other trees they make syrup from? Are there lots of Linden Trees in Russia?

I found an even harder way which involved trying to make it smaller and square (like another video I saw ) and using cream filling that was too fluid so that the cake slices were sliding about and the cream slid off the sides. The taste is amazing though. Great cake but do it the way Chef says.

this made me subscribe :) i don't have to bake it, bc nearby bakery sells pretty good medovik, but this recepie just brought childhood memories. it is as hardcore as i remember it. and none of my grandmas would let me near kitchen at the decoration stage, haha. i just ate all the icing and spill crumbs everywhere.
