This delicious Lebanese cake based on semolina is not too sweet and the turmeric adds an interesting flavour.
My whole family really enjoyed this recipe!! Its very yummy!! The younger ones put syrup on top to make it even sweeter. - 13 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out delicious! As I grow older I'm getting more and more turned off of overly sweet desserts, so this was perfect. I love the taste of turmeric, but it can be pungent--as one reviewer noted--especially if not measured correctly. Make sure you use a proper measuring spoon, because adding too much of certain spices (powdered cloves comes to mind) can overpower a baked good. Thank you for sharing this recipe! - 18 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
AWESOME CAKE. I love Middle Eastern cooking, and the turmeric is such a pleasant surprise. Shukran - 19 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
