The honey balls cake has amazing honey flavor and is extremely easy to make. You can use any frosting of choice for this cake!

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup (100 g) butter
  • 2 ¼ cups (500 ml) milk
  • 2 tbsp starch
  • vanilla extract to taste


  1. To make the balls airy, prepare the dough in a double boiler. Put 3 teaspoons of butter in it, half of the sugar and honey. Stir constantly until dissolved.
  2. Add baking soda, mix and remove from heat. Cool a little and add 3 cups of flour and 2 eggs. Knead the dough.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form nut-sized balls from the dough. Lay them out on the baking sheet, keep in mind that they will increase in size, so make sure that there’s enough space between them. Place the sheet in the oven preheated to 400 °F (200 °C) for 5–10 minutes.
  4. The frosting also needs to be prepared in a double boiler. Pour milk into a saucepan, add 2 eggs, starch, 3 tablespoons of flour, the rest of the sugar and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Add the rest of the butter and whip the frosting.
  5. Pour cooled balls with frosting and mix. Put them in a springform pan and refrigerate overnight.
  6. In the morning, flip the pan upside down, pour the cake with chocolate icing or melted chocolate.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
