When I took a class at a Community College, one of our assignments was to "demonstrate or tell the class how to make something" and our class followed the food-theme. Two ladies either from Ukraine or Croatia brought in this wonderfully tasty cake they called Cake Kieve. I must have been too busy enjoying the cake because when I look back at my notes they aren't helpfull. however; I remember the cake had a walnut meringue in the center. Anyone hear of this cake or know how to make it? know someone who knows how to make it? I understand that it is a "special occasion cake" because of the time that is invested in creating the cake.
Sorry...I've never heard of it but these recipes sounded similar
cake kiev (a dried fruit and meringue extravaganza)
Crunchy meringue-type cake with chopped hazelnuts layered with lemon custard.
Multy-layered cake with a half of the merengue-type layers (as in "Kiev" cake) and Genoese sponge layers with nuts for the other half. Spread with custard between layers
here's a couple of descriptions
I found this in a google search off of a forum... it's in russian http://slastenka.ru/tortkiev.html but there might be a free translation site on the internet you could use, unless you know Russian or know someone who does.
I also found this in the gluten-free recipe area here on CC
