Kemal Pasha dessert

Turkish desserts tend to be sweet and substantial and this one is no exception. Kemal Pasha dessert (kemalpaşa tatlısı in Turkish) is a speciality of Mustafakemalpaşa, a town in the province of Bursa in North-West Turkey.

The one in this photo is unusually big; normally a serving would consist of three smaller balls. Turkish friends say the best kemalpaşa tatlısı is still found in the town of Mustafakemalpaşa itself, made by a company called Güvenal.
