A cake made in 5 minutes! When I came back from Morocco, I had in mind to make a kind of rich cake with particular flavors: honey, orange blossom, durum wheat semolina and ghee (not smenn because I find it sometimes too strong). It is done with this sweetness perfect for the snack with a glass of mint tea. I baked it in a savarin pan, but of course you can make it in any size you like. 

Recipe for a 24 cm savarin mould:

  • 150g flour
  • 230g of medium durum wheat semolina (not couscous!!)
  • 170g of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 185g of fermented milk
  • 55g of honey
  • 15g of orange blossom water
  • 70g of ghee
  • 70g of butter
  • 1/2 package of baking powder

Mix the sugar, flour and medium durum wheat semolina.

Add the eggs and fermented milk.

Pour in the honey and orange blossom water.

Melt the butter and ghee together. If you can’t find ghee (a clarified and slightly fermented butter), you can use only butter (which makes 140).

Hop in the dough!

Mix well and finally add the baking powder. Mix again perfectly.

Pour into the mold of your choice. Grease it beforehand, either with butter or a little release spray.  The dough should reach a maximum of two thirds of the height.

Bake at 180°C for about 40 minutes. Check for doneness by sticking a knife into it and letting the blade come out dry. 

Remove from pan and let cool for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
