Greek Ravani Sweet Recipe

This is a very simple, tasty little sweet. You can have it to accompany your coffee or tea. Nice and easy to make, too!


1 kg all purpose flour
1/8 kg fine semolina
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
¾ litre extra virgin olive oil
½ kg sugar
¾ litre water
Juice from ½ lemon
Grated rind from ½ lemon


Put the oil, water and half of the sugar in a pan and bring to the boil.

Add the semolina, flour, lemon juice and rind and the remaining sugar, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.

Reduce the heat to the minimum.

When all the ingredients are well mixed, transfer to a shallow, greased oven dish.

The thickness of the mixture should be 3 – 4 cm.
Smooth the mixture so that it is even throughout the dish.

Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 – 200 degrees for 1½ hours or until the edges turn golden brown.
