    When I was in Prague a couple weeks ago I had the most amazing honey cake. I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for it they could share.

    You could try this one...

    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    1/4 cup butter
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    Cream Filling

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly flour a cookie sheet. Precut
    5 sheets of wax paper or parchment paper into 8-inch circles
    (dimensions don't matter, thickness does). If using wax paper,
    lightly grease.

    In a small bowl, combine sugar and eggs; set aside. In a large saucepan
    over low heat, melt butter. Add honey, egg-sugar mixture, and baking
    powder; stir constantly until well blended and foamy. Remove from heat.
    Stir in flour until dough is not sticky (if sticky add additional flour).

    Separate dough into (5) five equal pieces and place onto the wax paper
    or parchment paper circles; cover each with plastic wrap to keep warm.
    Using a floured rolling pin, roll one section into a round 1/4-inch
    thick. Place on prepared cookie sheet (if using wax paper, remove)
    and bake 3 to 5 minute or until just barely golden but not brown
    (watch it carefully). Remove from and oven. Remove from baking sheet
    and cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining (4) four sections
    of the dough, reflouring cookie sheet if necessary.

    Prepare Cream Filling. On a large serving dish, alternate 5 layers
    of cake circles and Cream Filling, applying the cream filling liberally
    between layers. With the fifth layer, crumble the cake into small pieces
    and sprinkle over the top of the cake. Let the cake sit 6 to 8 hours
    before serving.

    Yields one cake.

    Cream Filling
    1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    3 eggs, beaten
    2 tablespoons honey
    1/4 cup butter
    In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sweetened condensed milk,
    eggs, honey, and butter. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil; boil
    until it thickens. Remove from heat and cool.

    Wow sounds delicious! Anyone happen to have a picture of this by a chance? I am so much better at following recipe if I know what it “should” look like when it’s all done. :wink:
