    This is a bit different than the other baklava recipes posted here. Make this a day in advance so the syrup has time to soak in.

      Just had this cake for Passover last night. Oh my gosh! So very good! I couldn't find hazelnuts so I just used candied walnuts. That may make it a little too sweet for some, but my guest just raved over this cake. I can see myself using the syrup recipe for this cake for other desserts as well. This is a keeper!
