About Eggless Basbousa/ Revani Recipe

It’s been on my mind since my Turkey trip way back in 2008 and again in 2012. That’s where I first tried 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.
