Revani is a Turkish sweet semolina cake soaked in sugar syrup.You can say that it is more like the traditional Middle eastern Semolina Syrup Cake “Basbousa’. Actually the only difference is in the name,in Egypt it is called Basbousa and in Turkey it is well known by the name of ‘Revani “.

I made it a couple of months back and totally loved it.My family went crazy for this mouth melting sweet.That day we had some guests come over for lunch and it was one of the dessert along with Mango Sago and strawberry ice cream.That’s why I couldn’t click pictures of inside cake but let me tell you everyone liked the semolina syrup cake to the core.If you have a sweet tooth like me ,do try this simple and tempting dessert from Turkish cuisine.
