Semolina Turmeric Cake (Sfoof)11 Reviews
“A Lebanese dessert that is not overly sweet. It is pleasing to the American palate due to it's lack of rose water and orange blossom essence, found in most Middle Eastern desserts. Sahteyn! (bon appetit!)” - by Lara

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch round baking pan.
