This Layered Honey Cake recipe was born today due to the leftover buttercream from making my Shortbread sandwich cookies.
It is a very simple recipe to make, as you begin with baking a fluffy honey cake on a 13″ x 18″ cookie sheet, then cutting it into 3 even sections and layering them with buttercream and your favorite jam, then drizzling it with a glaze.
This is a modified version of a recipe someone shared with me in the past.
What is interesting about this recipe is that you can make several different versions of cookies from this one basic dough.
You can have single cookies with sprinkles or glaze, sandwich cookies with jam, sandwich cookies with buttercream and jam, or even stack 3 cookies together with buttercream and jam and make them into mini cakes.
If you ever attended a Ukrainian Christmas or Easter Bazaar, you must have been amazed by how many baked goods there are available for sale, plus tables flooded with Nut Rolls, Poppy Seed Rolls, Lekvar Rolls, Apricot Rolls, and other goodies.
These rolls are made out of sweet yeast-raised dough, then filled with one’s favorite filling, rolled up, then baked to a nice golden color.
My favorite is a Nut Roll, filled with a creamy mixture made out of ground walnuts. Today I will share my sister-in-law’s recipe for a Nut Roll, however, I also used Solo brand Poppy Seed, Apricot, and Plum (Lekvar like jam) fillings for my rolls.
