Some of you might be thinking now: “Honey Heart Chocolate Cake??? Does this thing even exist? Seriously Vera, what’s next? But don’t you worry my dear chocoholics, this recipe exists and not only in my imagination. The only catch is that it is an old Serbian chocolate cake that none of you would be familiar with, unless your mother or grandmother came from Serbia.
A few days ago while I was baking Nutella cheesecake, my little son decided that the whole thing just couldn’t go without him. You can imagine how this story ends. A two-year-old child in a kitchen full of cake fillings and dishes- splendid! But only for Marco! He had chocolate smeared all over him and he’s putting utensils in his favorite kitchen nooks. As you can guess, after no more than 15 minutes I decided to take him to my mother-in-law, so that she would babysit him.
When I took him to Grandma (that’s how we all call my mother-in-law) I could literally smell that something was baking in her kitchen! “Vera, it’s a great thing you came. I meant to bring a few slices of Honey Heart Cake to you. Just hang on a sec!”- said Grandma.
Grandma had just finished the old cake she called Honey Heart Chocolate Cake! She and Grandpa simply adored the old-fashioned cakes with a no cream and this one was their absolute favorite. While Grandma was slicing the cake, I took one tiny, little piece. Yummy!!! This gorgeous cake tasted like heaven! Home-made apricot jam and cinnamon perfectly combined with a chocolate base.
“Grandma, can you lend me the cake pan for a while? Don’t worry; you’ll get it back soon! Grandma was already familiar with my blogging hobby and she was delighted that this almost – forgotten recipe would find its place in my online culinary diary!
Thus, in 10 minutes,I took the photos of the pan with the chocolate cake and then individual slices for all of you who might wanted this to see! Meanwhile grandma copied the recipe instructions enjoying from the fact that other people might enjoy her good old Honey Heart Chocolate Cake.
