Layer Honey Cake Recipe (Medovik)

The famous Russian dessert, medovik, is a honey cake cherished for its tender texture and profoundly delicate taste. Medovik combines multiple honey biscuit layers with a tangy sour cream filling. The traditional medovik is made with a few simple ingredients — flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and honey — but today’s variations also include dark and white chocolate, nuts, fresh or dried fruits, and various other flavorings. Modern adaptations also replace sour cream with yogurt, whipped cream, condensed milk, buttercream, or custard, while the layers are commonly flavored with cinnamon and ginger powder. Even though making medovik seems like a long and laborious task, on average, it only takes about two hours to complete. That being said, the cake needs to rest in the refrigerator for a few hours (best overnight) for the cakes to soak in the moisture and soften. A cup of hot tea pairs well with a chilled slice of creamy medovik cake.
