Armenian Nazook & Nutmeg Cake

The Daring Bakers’ April 2012 challenge, hosted by Jason at Daily Candor, were two Armenian standards: nazook and nutmeg cake. Nazook is a layered yeasted dough pastry with a sweet filling, and nutmeg cake is a fragrant, nutty coffee-style cake. 

I only got to making the Nutmeg Cake (without the nuts). It's quite a plain looking cake but has a great flavour and was just fine without the nuts. Also it is really easy to make in a stand mixer. Follow the instructions for the food processor version - a stand mixer will rub butter into flour - remove half the mixture as per the recipe and continue mixing the other half in the bowl.

Here is the link to the recipe

Try this cake - it is wonderful !
