      Title: Revani (semolina cake)
 Categories: Cakes, Greek, Desserts
      Yield: 16 servings
    1/2 c  All-purpose flour
    1/2 ts Baking powder
  1 1/3 c  Fine semolina or farina
      4 lg Eggs; separated
    1/2 c  Sugar
    1/2 c  Olive oil
      2    Lemons; grated zest only
    1/2 ts Almond extract
    1/2 c  Orange juice
      1 ts Vinegar; for the bowl
   1/16 ts Cream of tartar
    1/2 c  Blanched, slivered almonds

    3/4 c  Sugar
      2    Lemons; zested and juiced
  1 1/2 c  -Water
    1/4 ts Almond extract
  Make the syrup ahead.  Combine the sugar, lemon zest and juice, and
  water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes then add
  the almond extract.  Remove and chill overnight.
  Line a 10-inch-square cake pan, that is at least 3-inches deep, with
  parchment.  Sift together the flour and baking powder, then stir in
  the semolina.  Beat the egg yolks, sugar, olive oil, lemon zest, and
  almond extract together until pale and creamy.  Beat in the flour
  mixture, splashing with orange juice to moisten it.
  Wipe a mixing bowl with a cloth moistened with vinegar, then put in
  the egg whites.  Beat with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks
  form, then fold into the batter.  Pour into the pan and sprinkle with
  the almonds.
  Bake in an oven preheated to 350 F for about 45 minutes until golden
  brown. Remove from the oven and, while still hot, cut into squares.
  Slowly pour the chilled syrup over it.
  Makes 16 slices
