Tiramisu Honey Cake

I’m sure there’s no such a thing as tiramisu honey cake, it may not even sound right, but when I come up with sweet ideas, things happen. I uploaded one of my honey cake recipes on my Armenian YouTube channel, and while making that cake, I realized that if I make the honey cake layers even lighter, fluffier, moisten them with amaretto coffee syrup and then flavor the chocolate buttercream cream with some tiramisu compound , it’ll taste completely different. I didn’t even test the recipe as I knew it’ll turn out perfect and very uniquely flavored. So just went ahead and shoot the video tutorial for my English YouTube channel. This was the story of my new dessert creation that I descended to call: tiramisu honey cake. Hope you guys try and enjoy my recipe.

Happy baking!
