Irina Malinskaya's Medovik (Honey Cake)

My grandmother said that back in Ukraine she used to swap honey cake recipes with her neighbors. The beauty of this cake is its density. While that sounds strange, it is supposed to be filling; similar to the original purpose and texture of a pound cake. Every time I see this cake at the table, my mouth starts to water. I hope it brings the same amount of joy to you all.
