According to a known TV host that she read, this cake is a “Bulgarian cake”!
This cake is a hundred percent middle eastern!!! its made for every occasion, every birthday, holiday, family get together and I could go on and on!
My mom made this cake hundreds of times growing up and I was 15 years old when I made this cake for the first time, it was my first year in culinary class in high school in Israel, Since then I fell in love with baking and cooking.
I made this cake for years, every time I make it with a different filling, whatever jam I have in my pantry at that time. the reason it’s called Mabroshi because of the dough is grated with box grater.
Mabroshi is an Arabic word that means Grated in English.
