Ravani: A Moist Greek Cake
I got a new mixer on Friday (YAY!) and had to make something. And since later I am making some Greek pitas, this seemed like a great idea - Ravani. It's a really moist Greek cake... sort of no frills. But delicious. It uses Semolina flour, which is the first time I have used that. (Almost left the grocery store without it!)
The cake is easy to make - but the kicker is the sweet homemade syrup you pour over the cake while it is still hot from the oven. I worried about using all the syrup from the recipe, and stopped short. I should have used it all. The syrup is totally absorbed and the result is a sweet, moist cake. Great with a cup of coffee or glass of milk.
