Variations

This recipe is pretty basic and quite stout, you can add relatively anything in it, as long as it is in reasonable quantities.

Warning, this cake is only weak to liquid ingredients, you have to make sure the dough isn't too full of water, or it'll fuck up during the baking, add flour and other igredients if needed.

For example, add 1/4th of ground hazel nuts and it's called a royal mazourki. You can also add fruits, spices, etc.
