Even the classic recipes, proven over the years, sometimes you want to improve. This is just such a case. I would like to suggest an interesting idea of how to make a caramel-flavored "Medovik".
In this recipe, I want to pay special attention to caramel, but otherwise it is a traditional honey cake. In this case, cream with sour cream and powdered sugar is used as a cream. The latter can, if desired, be replaced with condensed milk, for example. You can also add lemon zest to the cream, for example, to set off a sweet taste with a sour note.

How to cook "Honey cake with caramel flavor"
1. Place sugar in a tall saucepan or saucepan. Add water. This should make the sugar wet, but not float in the water! Put on fire and bring to a boil. 2. Once a nice caramel color appears, remove from heat. No need to stir! 3. In a hot saucepan, the caramel continues to change color and becomes more intense after a couple of minutes. At this time, you can add honey. 4. And hot melted butter. Mix everything gently. 5. Now the caramel base needs to cool slightly (before introducing the eggs). 6. When the mass has cooled down a little, beat in the eggs, add soda and citric acid. Stir and add a little flour.
