Honey and butter cake with fluffy polenta cream is a perfect cake for any occasion. Nice to look at and easy to cut. Thin layers of honey cake overlaid with a fluffy, cooked in milk polenta mixed with Lurpak butter and lemon juice. Delicate and particular delicious flavor. The cake can be prepared two days before as the layers in this period of time become softer and softer until they melt in your mouth.
