If you're fond of oriental sweets and sweets poured with sherbet like me, then, this is the right recipe for you. Easy to prepare, you don't even need a mixer. This cake is usually served with unsweetened coffee or tea because of its rich sweet taste. The internet went crazy for this cake, so here's the recipe.


For the dough:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sour milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2,5 cups semolina
  • 1 tsp soda bicarbonate
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar (10 g)
  • 1 cup flour
  • unsalted unbaked almonds or hazelnuts 
For the syrup:
  • 2,5 cups sugar
  • 2,5 cups water
  • 2-3 slices of lemon
 *1 cup measurement is 200 ml cup

  1. Mix well the dough ingredients with a wire and pour the mixture in a smaller oiled pan. Press and spread it well with your hands. 
  2. Decorate with hazelnuts or almonds and put to bake at 180 C degrees for about 40 minutes. After baking, leave it for 5 minutes, then cut in pieces.
  3. Prepare the syrup, boil water with sugar for several minutes until the syrup begins to thicken, then add slices of lemon.
  4. Pour warm syrup over cooled dough or cold syrup over warm dough. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and leave for several hours to soak the syrup well.
