Greek honey cookie cake


For the cake

  • In a mixer, add the heavy cream, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and orange zest.
  • Beat on low speed with the whisk attachment, until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Turn up mixer’s speed and beat until the mixture thickens and has the texture of whipped cream. (Careful it does not split.)
  • Line a 20 cm round spring form pan with plastic wrap in a crisscross manner, allowing the ends to hang over the edges of the pan.
  • Spread a layer of the cream over it.
  • Add 10 honey cookies over the cream and cover with another layer of cream.
  • Cover with another 10 honey cookies and repeat the same process one more time, adding a final layer of cream and covering with the 300 g of crushed honey cookies.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours.
  • Remove the plastic wrap and turn cake out upside down onto a serving platter. Carefully remove the plastic wrap.
  • Use a spatula or a knife with a straight blade to make the cake level and straight all around. Refrigerate again until you are ready to decorate with caramel.

For caramel

  • Heat the sugar in a pan over medium to high heat.
  • When the sugar melts and turns a lovely golden color (be careful that it doesn’t burn), spread it carefully onto a sheet of parchment paper and let it cool completely.
  • Then break it up with your hands and beat in a food processor for 1-2 minutes (you don’t want it finely ground).
  • Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  • When ready to serve, cover the sides of the cake with the crushed caramel. Place 2 honey cookies on top, sprinkle with the remaining caramel and serve immediately.
