Origins of the Mimosa Cake
This creamy delight was inspired by a traditional Russian cake, called Medovik, which is made of layered honey dough filled with walnuts and honey custard. Mimosa cakes take this traditional flavor profile and add some fresh and fruity ingredients that are not as common in Russian dishes. Apples, bananas, and a hint of orange give the cake a unique, refreshing flavor.

When you bite into this incredible masterpiece, you’ll be enchanted with the first crunchy bite of the apples and bananas combined with the fluffy vanilla creme. The natural sweetness of these flavors combined together will make everyone around you fall in love with this amazing cake.
If you want to add an extra “pop” to your Mimosa Cake, you can sprinkle powdered sugar before serving. The resulting sweetness from the sugary powder will tantalize and excite your taste buds.
