Revani refers to a traditional Turkish sweet made from semolina; a cake made of semolina that is soaked in light syrup. Beside Semolina, there is also yogurt among the ingredients. After baking, the semolina cake is cut in equal square pieces and then a syrup made from granulated sugar is poured on top while it is still hot. Revani can be served with thick cream, Kaymak or clotted milk cream, pistachios and hot Turkish cocoa drink. Revani is rumored to be invented by the chefs of the Sultan's palace to celebrate the conquest of Armenia in the era of Ottoman Empire. Thus the name comes (said to be) from Erivan victory. Revani can also be found in Greek Cuisine, where it is usually called Ravani.
