Sift the flour with powdered sugar, vanilla sugar and soda. Pour the dry ingredients on the work surface, add cold butter and chop into crumbs, add honey, eggs, sour cream, mix, divide the dough into 2 parts. Add sifted cocoa to one. Mix dark and light dough.

Divide each dough in half. Each particle is rolled out and placed on a form (25×35). Bake until ready at a temperature of 180 degrees.

Now we will prepare the cream. Pour semolina into boiling milk, stirring constantly, and cook for 8-10 minutes. Then cover with a lid and leave to cool.

Beat butter with powdered sugar and vanilla sugar until light and fluffy cream, add cooled semolina one spoon at a time, continuing to beat all the time, add cognac and lemon juice, beat again.

Add sugar to hot water, stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, pour cognac.

We collect our plot. Soak the brown cake in ¼ of the liquid, spread it with half of the cream, flatten it, lay out the light cake, soak it in ¼ of the liquid, spread it with jam (you can put more jam, to your taste), lay out the second light cake, soak it, spread it with the rest of the cream, put the brown cake on top, soak it . Put under a light press for 3-4 hours.

After a few hours, we start preparing the glaze. Melt chocolate and butter, stirring, over low heat. Remove the press from the plate and pour glaze over it. Sprinkle grated chocolate on top.
