For the Cake Layers:

For the Sour Cream Frosting:


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the honey, softened butter, sugar, and salt. Heat the mixture in a saucepan over medium heat until melted and well blended.

  2. Remove the saucepan from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly and gradually add them to the cooled honey mixture, stirring well after each addition.

  4. Sift the flour and baking soda together into the mixing bowl with the honey mixture. Stir until the batter is smooth and well combined. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops with a spatula.

  5. Bake the cakes for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  6. In the meantime, prepare the frosting by combining the sour cream, condensed milk, powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Beat the mixture until smooth and creamy.

  7. Once the cakes have cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a generous amount of frosting evenly over the top.
    Carefully place the second cake layer on top and frost the entire cake, including the sides, with the remaining frosting.
    For added decoration, you can crumble the trimmed cake edges and sprinkle them over the frosted cake.

  8. Refrigerate the cake for a minimum of 3-4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together.
    When ready to serve, slice a piece of this heavenly honey cake and savor each moist and creamy bite.
