Revani

Revani (reh -vah-NEE) (also spelled Ravani) is not difficult to make and is a delightful addition to any sweet table. It is a semolina sponge cake with a touch of lemon and sweetened with a simple syrup flavored with orange zest.

Semolina is durum wheat that is more coarsely ground than regular wheat flours. Therefore, semolina can cause the cake to have somewhat of a coarse texture (especially if you don’t use fine semolina, which this recipe calls for). But this flavor combination, as well as the citrus syrup, results in a delicious and moist dessert. You will want to make sure the syrup cools completely before spooning over the warm sponge cake or else the cake will become soggy.

As Revani is popular in throughout the eastern Mediterranean countries, you will find slightly different versions depending on the recipe’s origin. Check out Turkish semolina cake in syrup for a subtle twist on this simple recipe.
