Honey and butter cake with fluffy polenta cream


A perfect cake for any occasion. Nice to look at and easy to cut. Thin layers of honey cake overlaid with a fluffy, cooked in milk polenta mixed with a amazing Lurpak butter and lemon juice*. Delicate and particular flavor. The cake can be prepared two days before as the layers in this period of time become softer and softer until they melt in your mouth.

  3. Divide the dough into 5 equal parts. Roll each piece of dough (dust with more flour if necessary) until you obtain a few millimeters high square  (me 26 x 26 cm). Bake each square in a preheated static oven at 180 °C for ten minutes or until it becomes slightly golden. Take from the oven and continue in the same way with the other pieces of the dough.
