- 4 tablespoons butter, soft
- 2 Eggs
- scant 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 c flour
- 2 teaspoons active yeast
- 1/2 c warm water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/3 c sugar
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons whipping cream (heavy cream)
- A pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 c sliced almonds
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 pkg vanilla instant pudding
- 2 c whipping cream (heavy cream)
- 1 tablespoon honey
For the Dough:
Grease a 10-inch springform pan, then line it with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, add water and yeast. Stir until well mixed. Let the yeast rise for 5 minutes to activate.
Add the flour, butter, salt, and honey into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until well combined.
Add the yeast and eggs, then beat again until well combined. Add a bit of flour if the texture of the mixture is too sticky.
Grease a mixing bowl, then lay the dough in it. Let it rest for about an hour in a warm place.
Transfer the dough into the prepared pan and press it to the bottom and sides. Cover it again.
For the Topping:
Prepare the oven and preheat to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.
Heat a pan over medium.
Add butter and let it melt completely.
Add the honey, sugar, cream, and salt. Whisk until well blended and allow the mixture to boil for about 5 minutes.
Add the almonds and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool.
Pour the mixture over the dough and spread it evenly.
Move it inside the preheated oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean after inserting it in the middle.
Turn the oven off, then let the cake sit inside for about a minute to rest.
Remove from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature.
For the Filling:
Add the pudding mix, whipping cream, and honey into a mixing bowl. Beat until well blended.
Horizontally slice the cake in half.
Spread the filling over the first cake, then top it with the other one.
Serve and enjoy!
You can place the cake inside the fridge to chill before serving.
