Polish honey cake is another dessert of my childhood. The cake is light and has a mellow honey flavor without being too sweet. It's easy to make, delicious to eat, and I highly recommend it. Traditionally, the recipe calls for buckwheat honey which adds a distinctive touch to this classic Polish cake. It's a unique honey, very dark and very strong...and it takes a bit of getting used to if you haven't had before. However, for those less adventurous, a flavorful dark wildflower honey may be substituted for an equally delicious result, albeit not authentic.
