Heaven on Earth: Turkish chocolate dessert recipe
A chocolate lover's dream
One dessert that brings back many fond memories for me is a Turkish 'sup' – better known as a 'supangle'. When I was younger, my family and I would visit our local Turkish restaurant every Saturday afternoon, and would complete our lunch with a chocolate supangle for dessert as an accompaniment to some strong Turkish coffee or tea.
This dessert is essentially a chocolate pudding that comprises a base layer of cake pieces topped with a deep, rich chocolate cream pudding. The dessert is also commonly topped with shredded coconut, pomegranate arils, crushed nuts such as pistachios, almonds or walnuts, or my favourite garnish – chocolate chips.
