- 3 cups of flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3/4 cups of honey
- 1 cup of oil
- 1 cup of strong tea
- 4 eggs
- 2 tsp of baking soda
- 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp of ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp of allspice
Brew a cup of strong tea and let it cool a bit.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl together.
The mixture will be loose.
Pour the mixture into two or three 9 in by 13 in pans.
Bake at 350 F (180 C) for about 40 min or until the stick is dry when you poke the cake.
- 9 Tbsp of grits
- 2 cups of milk
- About 1 cup of sugar
- 2 sticks (250 g) of butter
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- Lemon juice from half a lemon
- Plum marmalade
Prepare the grits according to directions on the box with adding milk, sugar, butter, vanilla, and lemon.
Once the cake cooled, cut the cakes (if you made two) in half horizontally. If you made 3 cakes, no need to cut them.
Spread the marmalade on one layer.
Then, spread the grits on top of the marmalade.
Cover with the next layer. Do that on each layer.
This Christmas, I decided to bake something new. I found a recipe my mom got from her friend, and I gave it a try. I’ve never tried a pastry like this one, but I absolutely love it. It is best the following days after being baked. The flavor gain their strength and it is amazing!
This is a typical Polish pastry. The cakes are made in all households in Poland in many different versions. Instead of using a filling like this one, people cover it with chocolate, coconut, some add dried fruit and many other options. I hope you decide to give this a try this Christmas too 🙂
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
