If you love Revani (see recipe here), then this “summer” version with shredded coconut will blow your mind. My mother used to make this version of Revani (see recipe here) dessert in summer.

Adding shredded coconut gave an exotic and summer note to the dessert. It’s an easy recipe because you almost beat all the ingredients together and bake. The only downside is that you have wait it for cooling before you can taste it.

With a scoop of homemade ice cream (see recipe here) on top, it will be your summer dessert addiction!

Gluten Free Coconut Revani – Greek Semolina Cake
  • Have always in mind this rule for syrup at cake desserts: one should be cold (room temperature) and the other hot. You can have the cake hot and the syrup cold (room temperature) or the cake cold (room temperature) and the syrup hot. If both are hot, the dessert will be like mud. If both are cold, the cake will not absorb the syrup.

Good Luck and Bon Appétit!!!
