Sift the flour, cocoa, salt, soda, and spices in a bowl, and mix with melted honey-butter and eggs, finally add the lemon juice and sour cream. Knead well, you can use a blender. Wrap the dough in a plastic bag or foil and rest it in a cool place or refrigerator at least for an hour or more. Preheat the oven to 200 C degree and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
