Savour the Taste of Tradition: Russian Honey Cake in Auckland CBD

Honey Cake

Indulge in the rich history and delightful taste of Russian honey cake, or Medovik, at Queens Court Food Court in Auckland CBD.

A Sweet Slice of History

The history of Medovik, also known as Russian honey cake, dates back to the 19th century at the court of Czar Alexander I. Legend has it that the Czar's wife, Empress Elizabeth, who was famously averse to honey, unexpectedly fell in love with a honey-infused cake prepared by a new chef. This cake quickly became a favourite in the royal household and spread throughout the country.

From the palatial kitchens of the Russian empire, the recipe for Medovik made its way into Russian homes, where it became a beloved dessert. Each region added its own twist to the cake, incorporating nuts, various creams, and additional flavours like chocolate or caramel.

The Delight of Medovik

What makes Medovik so special is its intricate layers. Traditional Medovik consists of several thin layers of honey-flavoured cake, each separated by a creamy filling. The cake layers are made from a dough that includes honey, flour, eggs, and sugar, rolled out and baked to perfection. The filling is often a luscious blend of sour cream, sweetened condensed milk, or a custard-like cream. When assembled and allowed to rest, the cake's layers soften and meld together, creating a harmonious blend of flavours and textures.
