Honey gingerbread can be prepared quickly enough - make a simple dough with honey and sugar, flavor it with ground cinnamon, add more multicolored candied fruits and raisins. If you decorate the gingerbread figurines of mastic and candied diced cubes, you get a real pie.
Biscuit dough on yogurt is prepared simply and quickly, so the recipe, I think, will be within the reach of beginner bakers.
It is important to immediately heat the oven so that the ready-made dough does not wait for it to heat, and prepare a baking dish (cover it with oiled paper), as the biscuit dough must be immediately sent to the oven.

Method of making honey honey cake on yogurt
We separate the yolks from the proteins, we will beat the proteins separately, so they will be needed at the very end of the dough preparation. Pound yolks with sugar until white.
We add to yolks yogurt, I do not advise you to add to the dough strongly peroxidized yogurt, it can turn sour.
Melt butter, add to the mixture of yolks, sugar and yogurt. On the water bath, heat the honey honey, when it becomes liquid, add to the rest of the ingredients.
We mix oatmeal, baking powder and flour in a deep bowl, gradually pour in liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, knead the dough.
Add diced candied papaya or pineapple, washed and dried raisins, cinnamon and about 1/4 grated frozen lemon into the dough.
Frozen lemon is a good solution for economical housewives, I advise you to always keep it in the freezer. When you need to flavor pastries or salad, there is no need to spoil the whole lemon, just grate the frozen grate on a small grater, and send the rest back to the freezer.
To the state of stable peaks, beat egg whites, add them to the dough and mix the ingredients.
With a small margin we cut pieces of baking paper, lubricate the paper with vegetable oil, put it in a rectangular shape, fill it with dough. Layer the dough gently leveled.
Hanging pieces of paper will help you to easily get the finished gingerbread from the mold.
We put the form in an oven heated to 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Readiness of the gingerbread is checked with a wooden skewer.
When the finished ginger is cool, carefully cut the top off, cut the rest into squares. It is not necessary to do this, but this method of filing looks traditional.
We cut some candied fruits into small cubes, sprinkle with honey powder through a sieve, decorate with candied fruits.
In order to quickly, simply and beautifully decorate pastries for Easter, I advise you to use mastic figures, so an ordinary honey cake turns into a festive Easter cake.
