Turkish Angel Hair Cake with Pistachio and Cream Cheese
Preheat oven to 175°C (approximately 345°F).
Add sugar with 150 ml (approximately 5 ounces) of water in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Then stir in lemon juice and remove syrup from the heat.
Melt butter and stir in noodles. Mix well with your hands, so that the noodles disengage and butter spreads well. Press half of the noodles in a small springform pan and spread cream cheese on top. Spread remaining noodles on and press down. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Remove, let cool slightly, then soak well with the syrup, so the noodles absorb the syrup. Sprinkle with pistachios and serve.
