I can not even believe that this is my first time trying yogurt cake. As I ate my first slice then my second slice I was just so confused to why anyone has not tried this sinfully delicious cake. I can not even begin to put into words how unbelievable this cake is. The yogurt makes a delicate light and airy cake while the cardamom and orange blossom water takes you back to its Mediterranean roots. When poking the top with a fork before adding the sugar syrup be extremely careful so that you do not tear your cake, its very fragile. This would be heavenly served with fresh fruit.
