Best Lazy Cake Recipe

lazy cake

Everyone likes to have a go to cake that is particularly easy to make.

After all the name lazy cake is there for a good reason.

This particular recipe is probably less on the lazy side of lazy, when it comes to this category.

Meaning it has fewer steps to it, all easy, but more than a lazy, lazy cake might have!

But this dessert is distinctive, which makes it perfect to share with friends.

How to Make Lazy Cake

The thing about a cake is that you need the right ingredients in such a specific combination that they culminate into a cake at the end that has risen, tastes fluffy, and is cake like.

Lazy cake seems to be a method of finding the least amount of ingredients that will still produce a cake.

This lazy cake is no different, other than the Middle Eastern twist.

I use halva as a way to sweeten this cake.

Halva has tahini in it that gives it a different flavor, sweetening it in a soft and subtle way.
