Russian Honey Cake – Food Wishes ctm magazine

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.

    I know, I know…..someone's gotta be the trouble maker. I can't imagine liking this much honey in a cake. So much work for something that isn't chocolate! Nice video, though, AS always!

  • cam hamster on August 17, 2021

    I made this and made a couple mistakes, one bad, one good.
    First, I didn't cook the honey enough to caramelize to the point that it changed flavor at first, so cooked it a second time without adding more water at the end and it hardened. Don't do that.
    don'tserving and everybody loved it. I made the 9 inch version and It fed 20.

    This cake is well worth the effort.

    Aaah, yes, I can hear the hard bass coming already

    Comrade John😇😇👍

    A given temperature would be helpful, because everyone has a different tolerance to heat temperature. Help us out here chef John. 🙂

    This is the third video I’m commenting on. Play along with me. Every time he says “at which point” take a drink. I suggest sips because I’m getting drunk

  • FoodShowFan on September 1, 2021

    Kudos to those who attempted this! I will continue to drool through the screen. I don’t know if I have the patience to bake all those layers separately, and the wait times in between. 😭

  • Liberty Resurrected on September 5, 2021

    made this a year ago, everyone loved it, very good recipe, but dont get disgruntled if you turn the burnt honey into "tar" on your first try, never did burnt honey before, got it right on my second try though.

  • Diana Ranjith on September 7, 2021

    I just saw in Google how honey turn poisonous when heated

  • Gnatdaknot Blastoff on September 9, 2021

    Is this similar to Armenia birds milk cake?

  • Giedre on September 16, 2021

    I grew up in Lithuania, its very popular there. Recently made it, its not too hard, but very good. But I used more of the sour cream and a little bit of cream. My layers were a bit thinner.

  • VoluptuousB on September 16, 2021

    Could cake flour be used as an alternative?

  • schibbedie2 on September 18, 2021

    chef john is the coolest old guy i can think of

  • Бегунова Анастасия on September 21, 2021

    Can I use parchment paper instead of silicone mat to bake the cake layers?

  • Hyacinth Thompson on September 22, 2021


  • Froggy Q on September 25, 2021

    Hi chef. I made this cake following the exact recipe today. But im not sure why i managed to make only 7 crepes and a little batter left. Even though the size of the crepe is smaller and thinner then yours in the video. Can you tell me why this happened?

  • Leadene Baker on September 26, 2021

  • Anna McGraw on October 18, 2021

    I am from Russia and I've made this cake for my birthday. It's the most authentic tasting cake I could have possibly imagined. Thank you for the video, Chef John. Childhood memories are priceless and this cake helped me to go back to those times.

    @foodwishes can this recipe be made ahead? like bake the sheets 2 days before and then assemble? or should i assemble and they will hold up for a couple of days?

  • Wani Okoye on November 27, 2021

    The hidden joke between 9:50 and 10:00 min mark was genius! 😄 Beautiful cake, always thought the crumbs on the outside were biscoff. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you Chef John!

  • Daniela Duga on December 5, 2021

  • Analiza Madiam on December 17, 2021

    Love this cake

  • PleiadesNebula on December 18, 2021

    My favourite cake. Once made five of those for my neighbours in one go. In my family we always sprinkle layers with rum or cognac after baking and spread the dough way thinner until they are almost translucent. It does influence taste a lot.

  • Eugene Sedita on December 20, 2021

    Very warm, 125°F.

  • Eugene Sedita on December 20, 2021

    Wow, too much work. Too long.
    One time batter makes all those round cakes?

  • Нуриддин Баходиров on December 20, 2021

    Я помню когда мама готовила медовик все пчелы города прилетали к нам)))

  • Hey_Chin_Up_Buttercup on December 20, 2021

    And I too hope to speak as eloquently as Chef John one day. Poetry on a dime, y’all
