Low Carb Keto Middle Eastern Honey Cake
I didn't mean to make today's recipe at all.
I kind of stumbled upon it while I was trying to make something else.
I was trying to make this spectacular looking Greek dessert called Šampita that I found on Greek Goes Keto. It's this impressively tall meringue on top of a thin cake base. But I must admit, the Šampita was beyond me. I tried to make it twice, used up 2 dozen eggs, and had it flop twice.
It wasn't pretty.
But both times, the cake base turned out amazing.
The texture reminded me of a Middle Eastern semolina honey cake. So that's exactly what I made next. I took a deep breath and got out a dozen more eggs. This time around, I made the cake twice as tall and covered it with sliced almonds. Then I whipped up a simple sugar-free syrup to use in place of honey. And it worked! I had a delicious Middle Eastern honey cake with only 2g net carbs per slice.
