If you’re seeing yellow, your eyes aren’t playing tricks! This cake, called Sfouf (صفوف), is native to Lebanon and is NATURALLY colored with TURMERIC! Don’t be turned off just yet! It’s surprisingly and unexpectedly delicious. Slightly nutty (thanks to the semolina), very light, tender and addictively “unsweet” (unlike most Arab desserts! Lol). The slightly crunchy caramelized top is everything! Sfouf are usually topped with almonds or pine nuts, I used the latter. They add a sophisticated nuttiness and even more texture. Bonus, egg free and vegan! . . If you should know anything about turmeric, it’s that it is one of nature’s most powerful medicines. This antioxidant acts as an anti-inflammatory, boosts brain function, lowers the risk of heart disease, boosts skin health, fights aging and the list goes on and on. And here it’s in a CAKE! If that’s not enough to convince you to try it... then more for me! 😉 #RamadanOnMyTable  . . . . . . #sfouf  #cake  #cakes  #dessert  #turmeric  #yum  #antioxidant  #ramadan  #lebanese  #arabicsweets  #curcuma  #fatimashand  #iftar  #suhoor  رمضان #سحور  #لبناني  #sweettooth  #eeeeeats  #realfood  #cakestyle  #lebanesecake  #sfoof  #sfoufcake  #yellow  #healthyfood  #eggfree  #vegan

    This is such a great way to incorporate turmeric! But also lol’d at your comment about how it’s “unsweet” compared to most Arab desserts which means it’s normal standards of sweet 😂
