Honey pie

Everyone likes simple recipes, but when the result is better than you expected – it is always awesome. This happened with my honey pie. I began cooking it out of curiosity. But what will I get? Because I have only 220 g of honey. Believe me, as soon as you try the first piece – any doubts on the part of this pie will vanish away. Definitely, Jamie Oliver can find the best combinations.


  • Butter
    300 g
  • Honey
    220 g
  • Egg
    4 pcs
  • Nuts
    150 g
  • Whole wheat flour
    150 g
  • Baking powder
    1 tsp
  • Dark chocolate
    100 g
  • Cream
    200 ml


  • 1. Whip 250 g of softened butter (room temperature) with mixer well, saturating with oxygen. The mass should whiten a bit and increase in volume.
  • 2. Add honey in whipped mass. I took linden one as it has neutral taste. Now I can say that if you prefer buckwheat or flower ones – you can add them.
  • 3. Mix the mixture well again and add eggs one by one. After each egg it is necessary to mix the dough to homogeneity. So, that is why we add eggs this way – otherwise, it will be hard to get homogeneous mass.
  • 4. Chop nuts in blender. Crumbs’ size and sort of the nuts you can choose yourself – it is all about your fantasy.
  • 5. If you have a split mold – here is a secret how to take a corn out easily. Add parchment up a couple of times diagonally (it is the way how we were cutting out snowflakes in the childhood) and measure the distance from the center to the bottom edge.
  • 6. Collect a mold and pour the dough in. it is pretty dense thence level the surface. Bake at 160 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I give you this time because everything depends on your oven and the dough height in a mold. Corn should be springing and toothpick should go dry.
  • 7. Let a prepared corn to cool down and then take out. I decorated it with a chocolate glaze and berries, but it is up to your fantasy. It is easy to cook glaze: pour cream in a mug, add butter and well broken chocolate. Then you can boil it either on the water bath or in a microwave oven for pulses of 20 second (warm up, take out and mix, warm up again) until all ingredients are melted.
  • 8. Pie is very soft and, by the way, if you wait for a night – it will be even more delicious in the morning. Corn is very soft as well and moderately crumbly. Herewith it is juicy; no imbibition, custards or berries inner it is needed. It is one more advantage of this simple but effective recipes. Honey taste does not play any sense here, so do not be afraid that you cook only a honey pie.
