I came across this recipe years ago while visiting a friend of mine Hatice. She shared her mom’s recipe with me, the only problem was that the recipe was in Turkish measurements. It took about four times until I got it right, and converted it to American measurements. My daughter Dina always makes this, as it’s her favourite! She made this one that is in the photographs, so proud of her!
It’s really simple and easy to make, using simple ingredients.
What you will need:
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup yogurt
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 bunch of fresh dill chopped (or whole bunch if it is a small bunch)
- 2 leveled cups of flour ( I sometimes measure 2 x 3/4 in a measuring cup) Both work
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- sesame seeds
Grease bundt pan generously with butter, sprinkle sesame seeds evenly around pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, yogurt, feta, dill and oil mix well.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Combine and stir well with wooden spoon. Should be the texture of wet biscuits or a thick pancake batter.
Add mixture to the bundt pan and bake at 350 for 25 to 35 minutes, check with a toothpick to make sure it is fully baked. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn over to serving plate and remove pan.
Serve warm, enjoy!
You can wrap up the leftovers and refrigerate, that is if you have any leftovers!
