Mini Spiced Pumpkin Honey Cakes

Yes, that’s almost this time of the year. Celebration and festive food. Obviously, living in Canada has its advantage as there’s a huge gap between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our American friends are not that lucky, though. The question is if are they ready for some indulgent? These Mini Spiced Pumpkin Honey Cakes would be a delicious treat for Thanksgiving (And Christmas, too). Also, isn’t it great to eat an individual cake (Meaning you don’t need to share)?

A traditional Russian honey cake from my childhood has inspired me to create this twist. I have previously shared with you this traditional recipe and this lavender twist. And pumpkin? I couldn’t miss that idea either! The combination of sweet pumpkin, honey, and lots of earthy spices are meant to be together.

This time I wanted to play with the filling, and I used cream cheese with other ingredients. It’s like eating a cheesecake inside of the cake! Doesn’t this sound wonderful? However, keep in mind that thanks to the addition of cream cheese, this cream will not be able to moisten the biscuits very well, and compared to the previous versions, this cake will be a bit dryer (Still super delicious!)

Also, this is going to be my last pumpkin recipe this year as I am starting the season of gingerbread and eggnog here (Let’s be real: mostly gingerbread). However, I am positive I’ll back to my favourite pumpkins in January. And there is one little secret. I might (or might have not) have another twist on this Medovik, but this time that will be a Christmas version. But please – you’ve never heard this!

    This is like eating a cheesecake inside of the cake? You’ve got me there! Anything to do with Cheesecakes get’s my vote, plus I love your traditional Russina honey cakes. I want to try that traditional honey cakes recipe. I’ve never done any Russian cooking before! I’ll need to put these mini spiced pumpkin honey cakes on my list to try after that. They look amazing! Cheers Ben.

    Oh, that makes perfect sense to combine the honey cakes with pumpkin. This would be an excellent recipe for Autumn, and I’d gladly nibble on one of these cakes after Thanksgiving! I’m happy to see ginger, cardamom and nutmeg in the recipe, too. All of the perfect baking spices for this time of the year! Save me one…or two…or three…mwahaha! :-)
