Ingredients for Honey cakes "Baby"

Step-by-step instruction of cooking Honey cakes "Baby"

Step 1

Boil the syrup: pour water into a saucepan, put sugar, honey and boil to dissolve the sugar.

Step 2

Then remove the pot of syrup from heat, pour into it 3/4 of the total flour and quickly stir until a thick dough (use a normal spoon, but a shovel). Leave the dough to cool to room temperature.

Step 3

When the dough has cooled, add the softened (melted, - without a difference) oil.

Step 4

Add the lemon zest and the baking soda pre-mixed with a tablespoon of flour.

Step 5

Knead the dough until smooth. It is soft and very pleasant to work with.

Step 6

Roll out to a thickness of 1 cm, cut the gingerbread notch (or a glass), or roll into balls about the size of a walnut (first option preferred). Spread on the sheet or form, lubricated with oil, coat with egg yolk and bake at 180-200 degrees for 20 minutes until just brown (time may be changed according to the performance of your oven).

Enjoy your tea!
