like baklava, only better

As a dessert for littlelee's central-asian-style dinner party, we tried this recipe for Passover honey-nut cake in soaking syrup. Holy moly. Yum! Easy, easy, easy, and as one person at the party said, tastes just like baklava only with a better texture. And frankly, a lot less hassle on the part of the cook. Moist, gooey, nut-citrus-cinnamon goodness, with a rough, chunky texture. It's not just for Passover anymore. *grin* We served it with cardamom ice cream, but it'd be good with orange sorbet too, or whipped cream, or just plain.
