Now I don't know about you but hot beverages always get me thinking of cake and this one was no exception, although this time my mind went off on a bit of an experimental tangent. Could I use the flavoured powder in place of cocoa powder to make a Chocolate/Turkish Delight cake? The short answer was NO!!!! It sounded wonderful, in principal but the reality was a Turkish Disaster.
When it emerged from the oven it looked promisingly like a normal chocolate cake and it certainly had a
wonderful powerful Turkish Delight aroma but sadly it tasted like a chocolate sponge cake soaked in floral fabric softener. Needless to say it was swiftly launched into the bin. The cake didn't last long but the sickly perfume was with us for days, it's almost put me off Turkish Delight for life...well for this Christmas anyway.
