Ravanija is an old traditional dessert which is widely prepared in all countries that were under Ottoman empire. It's one of the most delicious desserts, it's easy to prepare and a must try sweet. You can't usually stop at one piece so It's the best to take the whole ravanija and eat directly from the baking tray lol.


For the dough:
  • 5 eggs
  • 10 tablespoons sugar
  • 10 tablespoons semolina
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 1 baking powder (10 g or 2 teaspoons)
For the sherbet (syrup):
  • 800 g sugar
  • 400 ml water
  • 1 vanilla sugar (10 g)
  1.  Mix eggs and sugar with a mixer. Then add semolina, flour and baking powder. Mix until the mixture is even. 
  2. Put in a  baking tray 25x30 or maybe a little larger and put in the oven to bake for around 20-25 minutes at 180 C degrees. Check with a toothpick if the biscuit is baked.
  3. Once you bake the dough, leave to cool.
  4. For syrup: Put sugar, water and vanilla sugar to a boil in a pot at low temperature for around 15 minutes. When the syrup is ready, pour on previously cooled dough. Put some coconut flakes on top to decorate.
