Racing Bakes: Turkish Sekerpare
Deliciously moist and tasty cakes that are as soaked as the Istanbul circuit this weekend!
The next stop on the calendar this season is another last minute addition to make up the numbers but a very welcome one; Istanbul Park, in Turkey. After 7 years on the annual race schedule, it dropped off the calendar in 2011 and, it has to be said, the sport has really missed it.
One corner does not a good race track make, but much like Spa Francorchamps has the iconic Eau Rouge, Turkey has the quadruple apex left hander of turn 8. If people are still talking about a corner having not seen it for 9 years, you know it's a good one and it's surprise return this week is a real treat!
To celebrate, we are making the traditional Turkish dessert of Sekerpare. Traditionally, these are beautiful, sweet, semolina cookies soaked in lemon syrup. Given that i'm allergic to lemon, i've gone with lime syrup and the result is so tasty! These are really quick to put together too so well worth a go.
