Honey Balls Homemade Cake

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

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups (520 g) flour
  • 1 ⅔ cup (320 g) sugar
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup (100 g) butter
  • 2 ¼ cups (500 ml) milk
  • 2 tbsp starch
  • vanilla extract to taste

Preparation:

  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.

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 oz (80 g) almond flakes
  • 1 ¼ cup (300 ml) cream with 33% fat content
  • 1 pinch of salt

Preparation:

  1. Beat with a mixer ½ cup (120 g) of brown sugar with softened butter, 4 egg yolks and milk. Sift flour with baking powder and beat all the ingredients with a mixer at low speed.
  2. Separately, beat 4 cold egg whites with a pinch of salt and 1 cup (200 g) of brown sugar until firm peaks form.
  3. Put the dough on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, smooth out with a spatula. Put the whipped egg whites in a pastry bag or a plastic bag with a cut corner and pipe the meringues onto the dough.
  4. Sprinkle the meringues with almond flakes or crushed almonds and put the cake to bake in an oven preheated to 350 °F (180 °C) for 30 minutes. The meringue should become golden and solid inside. After baking, let the cake cool completely.
  5. Cut the layer into two parts, apply whipped cream to one half and cover with the other. Put the cake in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

These beautiful homemade cake ideas will be the culmination of any festive occasion. After all, it is the cake that makes the celebration so special!

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!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
Many thanks

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing
which I believe I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad
for me. I’m looking ahead in your subsequent post, I will
try to get the hang of it!
