Honey cake

Why do people, when I say I’ll be baking a cake, directly assume it will be a space-cake… I’m not making a space-cake this time. This time I’ll be baking a honey-cake! Based on a traditional Czech recipe. :-p

Tomorrow or this weekend I’ll give my culinary abilities a nice test. I already got all the ingredients and all the equipment. All I need to do is make the connections and hopefully a delicious cake will be the result. With this cake I should probably invite my parents and brother to come by and visit, so that all future criticism about lacking cookies will be ended. ;-)

Okay, this is the recipe:

Honey Cake I

You need:
· 2 honey spoons
· 2 milk spoons
· 1 egg
· 15 dkg powdered sugar
· 5 dkg butter
· 1 soda bicarbona tea-spoon

· Mix everything together.
(My experience is that it is easier to mix everything this way – You lay a pot over another one with boiling water and mix everything in the upper one.)
· Add 50 dkg four (we call that sort of flour ‘smooth’ but I don’t know if you have different sorts of flour).
· Make a dough.
· Roll the dough with a rolling pin into 4 flat pancakes.
· Lay a baking paper onto a baking sheet and lay a pancake on a baking sheet and bake it.
· Pile all baked pancakes and ‘glue’ them together with creme (butter, powdered sugar, flour, milk)

· Whip everything , except flour, together in a pot on a oven.
· Add flour and make a dough.
· Greese a baking tray and dust it with a little bit of flour.
· Put dough on a baking tray and make it flat with your hands.
· Bake it.
· Spread the cold pancake with a creme and leave it for a next day.
· Cut it into stripes and pile it one on another.
· Spread the surface with creme and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
