Revani (reh-vah-NEE') is a classic dessert that has been present in Turkish cuisine since the Ottoman period. It's said to have been given its name when the Ottomans conquered the city of Yerevan in what is today Armenia.

Revani is one of the most common desserts in Turkish cuisine that's served both at home and in restaurants. It is a simple dessert made with a single layer of soft, yellow semolina sponge cake steeped in lots of light syrup.

Different versions of revani exist in many cuisines throughout the eastern Mediterranean, including Greece, Egypt, and Jordan to name a few. Try this easy recipe and experiment with different flavorings to make authentic Turkish revani at home.
