The History of Russian Honey Cakes
Most Russian moms have their own recipe for honey cakes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Some also tweak the recipe to create variations like caramel and chocolate. While there are many versions of its history, people commonly credit the cake to Elizaveta Alexeyevna, the wife of Alexander I. It is believed that she didn’t like honey but the chef who made this cake didn’t know this. Her anger immediately turned to delight with the first bite.
Some believe that the Russian honey cake isn’t native to Russia at all. It was adapted from a foreign recipe and became famous as it appealed to the Russians’ taste for honey. The cake was probably invented around the 12th century by German nuns who mixed flour with honey and left for a month for the dough to rise. The cake was flavoured with nuts, spices, and dried fruits.
Irrespective of its origins, Russian cakes are one of the most popular cakes and are found in restaurants across the country.
