Honey cake belongs to very popular Eastern European desserts. And as with many other cakes there are several types of it. In Poland for example, you can find a classic honey cake filled with thick butter cream, delicate honey cake with many layers like Marlenka, or honey cake with semolina cream.
Actually, the last one is one of the most popular nowadays.
And what so special about it?
Key to great honey cake is semolina cream.
As I mentioned earlier the honey cake is usually filled with thick butter cream. Once the cake is baked it is covered with foil for 1 or 2 days so the honey layers can absorb the humidity of the cream.
This cake is filled with semolina cream. Semolina gives it a lighter consistency and richer texture. To me personally this combination is really tasty.
