Turkish cakes and pastries

I find Turkish cakes sickly sweet - and on top of that you are usually encouraged to eat them with a glass of coca cola lol ............ what is the equivalent in Turkey of egg custards, vanilla crowns, almond croissants and where are the apple and cherry pies and crumbles and the ginger, walnut and carrot cakes? ....... also, where is the icing - thick buttercream on top of cup cakes, marzipan and royal icing on top of fruit cakes ....... and eccles cakes, scones and tea cakes ......

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

I agree. I don't like their cakes either. I have seen carrot cake in the nice coffee shop in the Marina

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

there is practically no baking apart from ekmek - very little if any pastry products - no shortcrust or flaky pastry meat or fruit pies, no granary/garlic/sun dried tomato or other speciality breads ........ I go to the bakers here and look at the display and there is absolutely nothing I want to buy .........

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

why not sold in the supermarkets - just aisles full of cheap sugary biscuits and processed cakes - nothing fresh? the little cakes that supermarkets and bakers sell (elma for e.g.) as dry as sawdust and taste like sawdust .......

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

I agree Helen. Turkish food is yukky so we can keep slim! No temptation there
On the other hand I've only been home a couple of days and have pigged out on glorious British grub) Good thing I'm not here for very long

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

I am sure you are making the most of it - enjoy! xx Is there a Morrisons supermarket by you - their fish display will rival any in Turkey - plus thai fish cakes, freshly prepared prawn cocktails, mussels in wine and garlic - colcannon, cauliflower cheese, risotto - cakes, cheeses, cold meats, speciality breads - to die for soups - branston pickle, horseradish sauce, pease pudding ...........

Re: Turkish cakes and pastries

Ahhh Waitrose - very nice but expensive - of course your Turkish neighbours like it all - if they were to see the choice of food available in UK supermarkets, their eyes would pop out of their heads lol xx how's mum?
