  1. I tried this recipe but I used a yeast substitute of baking soda and lemon juice that you can find on about.com.<br/>with this substitute it is very easy to make the recipe in a short time and it is good :D
  2. Both my boyfriend made this up and we both loved it. Taste just like the ones that we buy from the Turkish cafe. i have even emailed it to my family and they loved it too.
