Medovik is a layer cake that is immensely popular in Russia and other nearby countries that was once a part of the former Soviet Union. Known for its multiple layers, Medvoik consists of eight layers or more of sponge cake, and cream filling. While there are numerous recipes for Medovik, and almost every Russian family has its own secret recipe, the main ingredient remains the same, i.e., honey, which gives the cake its unique taste and flavour.
Did you know?
As per Russian tradition, Medovik was created in the 19th Century by a young Chef who wanted to impress Empress Elizabeth Alexeievna, the wife of Alexander I. The Empress did not like honey at all. However, the young chef, who was unaware of the empress’ dislike, baked this cake with honey and sour cream for her. Surprisingly, not aware of the honey content in the cake, she fell in love with it. Soon, the cake gained immense popularity during the Soviet era.
