    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    A delicious Arabian honey treat, and very quick and easy to prepare. The cake is buttery-eggy, and the topping is a chewy confection of butter, sugar, honey, almonds and cinnamon; Ed compares the topping to pecan pie, but it's much more caramelized and toothsome.

      Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla together until the color"lightens" slightly; add melted butter and mix well.

    8. 8
      After the 12 minutes of baking, take cake out of the oven (it will look a lot like custard at this point) and gently pour the topping onto the cake.

      We loved this! I wasn't really in the mood to make anything complicated and this was great. I did mess it up a little...pouring gently is something I'm not good at apparently, so there was crater in the I found it easier to spoon the syrup over. I've even got suggestions to try using cardamom or cloves next time. So you know there'll be a few next times. Thanks!
