Honey Cake Layers

  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 oz honey
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp lemon juice
  • 15 oz white flour have some extra near you for dusting surface


  • 18 oz sour cream
  • 7 oz heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 oz roasted walnuts



  • To a medium saucepan add honey, butter, sugar, and melt them together over medium heat, whisking until all ingredients are melted.
  • Remove the pan from the heat when the sugar is dissolved and add the eggs. Whisk vigorously until all the eggs are incorporated.
  • Add the baking soda and sprinkle it with lemon juice to activate the baking soda. Whisk the mixture until no lumps remain. Fold the flour gradually with a spatula. ( if you see the dough doesn’t come together and is still very sticky you can add a bit more flour. If you have extra time, place the dough in the fridge for an hour, it will be easier to roll the dough)
  • Cut the dough into 10 pieces. Flour the surface and roll each piece into a thin 9″ circle around 1/8 ” thick. Place a 9″ plate over your rolled dough and trace around with a knife to get a circle. Keep the scrapes they will be used for the decoration.
  • Heat the oven to 400F. Place the layers on the tray covered with parchment paper and bake the layers for 4-5 mins or till they turn a golden color. Transfer to a wire rack and let the cool. Bake the scrapes. Once they are cooled, pulse them together with roasted walnuts in a food processor.


  • Beat heavy whipping cream with sugar until fluffy and stiff. Add vanilla essence and fold in sour cream.


  • Spread the frosting generously on each cake layer. Frost the tops and sides with the remaining frosting. Dust the top and the sides with the crumbs and leave the cake in the fridge for a couple of hours to absorb the cream and soften.

    Delicious cake, easy to make especially with KitchenAid! Mine turned out lighter but probably due to oven temperature. Thank you!
