Almond Semolina Cake Soaked in a Honey-Citrus Syrup Shamali


Shamali is a luscious syrup-soaked almond and semolina cake that is popular throughout the East Mediterranean. This moist cake fragrant with orange blossom water is made with ground mastic which adds a pine-scented depth. Delightful served with coffee or as a spectacular finale with whipped cream and fresh berries that helps balance the intense sweetness.
