Ingredients Edit

Syrup Edit

Directions Edit

  1. With the mixer we beat up the eggs with the sugar for about 5-6 minutes until they become a thick substance.
  2. Then we add one by one the rest of the ingredients and we continue to beat up until we have a smooth - not very thick dough.
  3. We spread some butter in a baking tray, we put the dough in the baking tray and we put it in the oven for 45 minutes approx.
  4. (150-175 °C, gas mark 6) until it becomes brown on the top.
  5. Then, we let it cool down while we prepare the syrup.
  6. We put the water, the sugar and the cinnamon in a pan and we let them come to the boil.
  7. We let them boil for about 5 minutes or until the syrup starts thickening.
  8. We take the pan of the hob and we soak the "ravanija" with the syrup, making sure that it covers the whole sponge.
  9. We sprinkle some more desiccated coconut on the top and we let it cool down before we serve it.
