Cake Number 9: Tourva (Cyprus)

Tourva2

To make up for my disaster of a cake, I’ve decided to redeem myself by making a cake that requires simple icing.  It’s cheating, but I like to think of it as ‘People actually want to eat this cake and not run screaming from it’.

This cake is so satisfyingly heavy (it’s full of syrup!).  Admittedly, though, I think I’d make it again without the syrup, or with less syrup, as it’s so sweet, it overpowers the coconut taste.  I probably wasn’t supposed to add all of the syrup, but I did anyway!  And now there’s a nice big puddle around my cake.

I think I’m gonna go and have another slice 🙂
