Easy and nut recipe of a traditional tunisian cake.

This is one of the most baked and loved tunisian cakes. It is based on sorghum flour, a very nutritious variety of seeds. For those who like cakes with reduced sugar, try to put about 125g of sugar instead of 200g. That’s what I personally do! I like also to add some orange blossom to it. It gives it a nice flavour.
