Honey Cake Russian Medovnik

This is one of my favorite Russian layer cakes! I actually have to control myself to have no more then 2 slices. I am sure if you try it, you will see what I mean. 
It makes a while to make, but it is so worth it in the end. 



1 can of condensed milk
3 eggs
2 TB honey
1/2 cup of butter

Cake layers:

2 eggs
3/4 cups of sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 TB honey (heat in microwave for a few seconds until runny)
1/2 cup of butter
2 cups of flour

2 cups of walnuts


Make the cream: 

In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, combine condensed milk, eggs, honey and butter. Stir constantly, as soon as the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat.
Transfer to a bowl and put in the refrigerator to cool down. 

Making the cake layers:

Preheat oven to 350

Beat 2 eggs with sugar, baking soda and warmed up honey.

Melt the butter in a medium sized pot and transfer the beaten mixture into the the pot.

Add the flour into the pot and stir until well combined. Remove from heat and cool.
