This liquorice-flavoured Lebanese cake is a beautiful golden colour because of turmeric powder. Top each portion of cake with a pine nut before baking.
I love aniseed and this cake is a dream It's not overly sweet and the flavour lingers on.....Very popular with my guests, so many thanks for this one, Laura. My only advice would be to really loosen up the turmeric powder first, as that extra really dampens the aniseed flavour and level the spoon with a knife. Can't wait to make it again - 13 Oct 2017
