When I first heard about Revani, I was immediately drawn in. I watched a video that was in Turkish and I only had an idea of the ingredients. What struck me about this recipe was how easy it was and the part where the syrup is absorbed into the cake. This is essentially a semolina sponge cake.
Revani Tarifi is a traditional Turkish cake that is not unique to Turkey. It is made throughout the Mediterranean and the Middle East. My first Revani Tarifi was a more traditional one. The main flavor is lemon. It is a delicately flavored cake. It is perfect for tea time and maybe even an indulgent breakfast. This cake was so easy to make I yearned to put my own spin on it. Today we are making Blueberry Lemon Revani Tarifi in celebration of Summer.
Most Revani recipes are made with semolina flour. Some families have branched out to using polenta, possibly due to what was available at the time. I was curious and made this Revani with polenta. Are you on team semolina forever or are you open to new ideas? Leave a comment below.
If you want to make one to freeze, simply wrap in plastic wrap then in foil. It should keep for up to three months. Just thaw at room temperature.
