“Honey Heart” Cake, the taste of the honey cookies from childhood

Do you like honey cookies? I do. But, honestly, I haven’t eaten in at least 20 years, because the ones that are now sold in the store, like almost everything else, do not have the taste we remember. OK, I know I sound like an aging woman grumbling with nostalgia for the past. But I only grumble about some things, like pastries in the candy shops, vanilla ice cream, grandma’s cheese pies and… honey cookies.

One night I wanted to make a quick and easy cake with not so many ingredients and despite half the library full of cookbooks and notebooks with handwritten recipes, I just did a Google search. Then I saw this recipe on the internet site www.zajenata.bg. Sugar, flour, cocoa, honey (which if you don’t have, you can replace with any jam), not even milk, but hot water… Great, I said to myself, except for the butter in the glaze, it’s really suitable for fasting! I rolled up my sleeves and here it is! The whole house smelled delicious and homemade cake like during Christmas holidays! And no one had warned me about the taste (especially after it cooled down, even the next day) – just like the honey cookies of the childhood times!

A divine delicacy that melts in your mouth and you want more and more! Try it and you will see! 😉

Put briefly (with breaks and check for short periods of about 5-10 seconds) in the microwave and then stir well. It is necessary to melt the butter.
If you're worried about melting everything in the microwave (honestly, there's a risk, once I forgot the bowl inside and the chocolate curdled), you can do it in a fireproof bowl on a water bath. Place it on a saucepan with slightly boiling water that does not touch the bowl with the chocolate. Stir until all ingredients are melted.
