Yemeni Rawani Cake

This is probably one of the easiest cakes you'll ever make. Rawani is an eggy cake thats spongy and fluffy. There is no sugar in the batter because the cake is soaked in sheera (simple sugar water) as soon as it comes out of the oven - just like basboobsa.


The recipe below is enough for a 9x13 rectangular cake pan, but you can halve the recipe to make a smaller cake in a 9 inch round cake pan - which is what I did in the video demonstration below.
