About Basbousa/Turkish Revani Recipe

I had this on first Turkey trip way back in 2008 and again in 2012. I fell in love with this moist Middle Eastern cake called Basbousa. It is also called Turkish Revani. It’s a simple cake using semolina and soaked in sugar syrup. The traditional recipe calls for yogurt, since I ran out of it – I tried a different method using condensed milk. It tasted absolutely delicious and pretty much like what I tried in Turkey.
