This is the childhood cake of most Slavic kids. Because of a very rough lifestyle, people would try to manage to bring in a bit of sweetness into their homes. It had to be a pretty quick and simple recipe. This is why this recipe was a staple in each home.

Anthill Cake (aka Muraveinik) on a long rectangular plate

It is called an Anthill Cake, because it resembles an anthill. I formed this cake the way it is, for easy slicing, but you can shape it anyway you’d like.

This cake tastes like tiny cookies covered in caramel. When it soaks overnight, flavors are absorbed into the cookies, making it a killer cake.
