Sorry, it is really a Morrocan dish. There are so many similarities in Middle Eastern dishes that I forget that there are differences as well.
Moroccan cuisine is quite different from Turkish cuisine, I think. Turkish cuisine is a mix of Turkish, Greek, Arab, Balkan and Persian cuisines.. extremely diverse and rich cuisine. But Moroccan cuisine is also good.
Kardelen, you have done a great job on your website and I would love to make your lemon cake. But I cannot buy self-rising flour here. OK, help! Somebody have an idea how I would adjust the leavening? Add baking soda?
