Russian honey cake with many layers?
I'm looking for what you all think is the best honey cake around for someone special.
She's talked about a honey cake with many layers that she had back in Russia.
I'm looking to buy one for her upcoming birthday. Looking for any place relatively accessible by public transportation.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
honey cake? or Russian coffee cake? A couple of the kosher bakeries on 108th street have the russian coffee cake if that's what you're after...I've never seen a densely layered honey cake--you could also ask the russian food store on the corner of 64th rd and 99th st in Rego Park, they might know where to direct you.
Gastronom or "A&R International Food & Delicatessen" on 108 st between 63 DR and 63 RD has at least two kinds of this honey cake and they are delicious. It is not a bakery, it is more of a Russian deli, I think they buy the cake from somewhere. I've seen it in other Russian delis as well. 108 is farther from the subway, you should try first in delis on Queens Blvd and if you can't find it check out 108 st.
