Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbs of honey
  • 1/2 cup of icing sugar
  • 2 cups of butter
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Peanuts layer:

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 300 g salted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of sugar

3 cups of vanilla pudding

1 and 1/2 cups of Masa Krowkowa/Dulce de Leche

Instructions:

Cake

  1. Put all the dry ingredients for the cake into the food processor and process for around a minute.
  2. Add butter and process for another minute.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients for the cake and process until batter comes together.
  4. Transfer the dough on the plastic wrap and divide into 3 equal parts. Flatten into rectangles. Cover and keep in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  5. After an hour line your 9x11 baking pan with a parchment paper. Roll out first part of the dough to fit in the pan more or less and then using your hands press it to fill the pan. 
  6. Bake the first part in preheated oven to 180 degrees celsius for 15 to 18 minutes. Watch it carefully after 12 minutes because it can brown very quickly.
  7. Let it cool down completely before removing from the baking pan.
  8. Repeat the process with the second part of the dough.
  9. After you fit the third part of the dough in your baking pan, set it in the fridge and prepare peanuts layer.
  10. Chop your peanuts or crush with a meat pounder (in a ziplock bag)  and transfer them to a saucepan.
  11.  Heat the peanuts on the medium heat until they get fragrant. Add sugar, honey and butter and bring to boil. Cook for about a minute and then transfer on the prepared third layer of the cake. Bake like previously.
  12. Let all the layers cool down completely before assembling the cake.
  13. Set the first clean layer in the 9x11 baking pan lined with overhanging parchment paper, it will make it much easier to remove the cake later.
  14. Pour vanilla pudding over the empty, baked layer in the baking pan. Spread evenly.
  15. Cover with the second empty layer. 
  16. Spread masa krowkowa/dulce de leche on top and cover with the nuts layer. 
  17. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Enjoy!
