The Most Amazing Russian Honey Cake

The Most Amazing Russian Honey Cake


Ingredients:
1/4 cup Burnt Honey (from recipe below)
3/4 cup (9oz/ 255g) honey (*see note below)
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons (8oz/ 227g) granulated sugar
14 Tablespoons (7oz/ 199g) unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
6 large eggs (300g without the shells)
etc.

Instructions:
  • First. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 180C/375F.
  • Step 02, Line 2 or 3 (or more) baking sheets with see-through silicon mats. On a large piece of paper, trace a circle around a 9-inch pie or cake pan and place the paper underneath one of the silicon mats. If you don't have silicon mats, trace the 9-inch circles directly onto 11 baking-sheet-size pieces of parchment paper. Place a piece of parchment tracing-side-down on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Step 03, Place 3/4 cup of honey in a 2-quart saucepan, and set over high heat. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium. Cook the honey, stirring occasionally with a heat-proof spatula, until it the color darkens and turns from pale yellow to dark amber; about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and carefully add 1/4 cup water. Allow the honey to sputter until it stops bubbling, then whisk to combine. Transfer to a heatproof measuring cup with a spout, and set aside.
