I think this recipe is correct, but I will recheck it with Hacer tonite, and make modifications if necessary. I used to make this a long time back, and tommorrow I plan to make it for a friend who is going to visit me for tea. It looks like a cake, but sugar syrup is poured over it.
For the cake:
1 cup sugar,
1 cup oil,
1 cup yoghurt,
1 1/3 cup semolina,
1 1/3 cup flour,
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup crushed walnuts (optional)
3 1/3 cup sugar,
4 1/2 cups water
half lemon juice
Dessicated coconut for garnish.
Mix all the ingredients of the cake and bake at 350 deg F till red-gold in color. Turn the oven off, and broil for about 2 mins, or just let it sit in for about 10 mins till the surface is red-brown.
To make the syrup, boil the sugar and water for about half an hour, or until it thickens. Add the lemon juice and again boil for more time, till syrupy consisitency is reached.
Cake and the sugar syrup should be warm. Pour the syrup over the cake and wait a few hours for it to get absorbed.
Cut into squares or diamond shape, and garnish with dessicated coconut. Enjoy!
