Russian honey is the ultimate summer dessert.
Russian food fans will have a sweet treat to fall back on this summer.
The sweet, spicy honey cakes are made with Russian cheese, honey and chocolate, and are so good that you can’t help but get all worked up over the taste.
I was introduced to Russian honey a couple of years ago when I was a student at a local Russian school.
I had never heard of it, so I asked my mom to make me a batch for me.
She got me a bunch of dried Russian cheese and melted it all together.
I ate it up, and then I decided I was going to try it myself.
Russian honey has a very mild taste and a light, slightly sweet flavor, but it’s also incredibly versatile.
I could use it as a topping for homemade pies, but I think the best use for Russian honey in recipes is in Russian cheesecakes.
My husband is the one who always gets me excited when he comes home with Russian honey cakes.
I’m always telling him about the Russian honey and how much I love it.
He’s always saying that I need to make more Russian honey.
I love how sweet it tastes.
He even tried making his own Russian honey chocolate cake and it was delicious.
As I mentioned above, Russian honey can be a bit expensive, but once you find the right recipe, it’s just a great treat to enjoy on summer nights.
It’s super versatile and it makes a great summer treat.
