prague: honey cake
I picked up a last piece on my way to the airport, so no time for staging this pic
I didn't try honey cake, aka Medovnik, until my last day in Prague, and then only by accident. I had skipped breakfast and was starving outside Troja Chateau. There was only one restaurant and they didn't have any breakfast items. The waiter suggested something from the dessert menu and I luckily selected honey cake, my new favorite cake! The first bite was heaven and it only got better and more satisfying. No law of diminishing returns here. The waiter said it was a 1000 year old recipe. I can't wait to try making it myself. If anyone knows where I can get one of these in Zurich, please let me know. I want to have a Medovnik party asap!
Here's the honey cake story from The Prague Post
Check this fun blog entry I ran across, waxing poetic on Medovnik.
