Baked Helva

We are currently relaxing in Ayvalık, one of our favourite haunts for a short break.  We’ve been to Bergama, eaten fish dinners on the sea front at Cunda, and generally relaxed.  Tomorrow is Ayvalık market which is fabulous and great fun.  There will be pictures and more when we get home and don’t have to work on the tiny netbook.  But for now….

Yesterday as dessert we were served helva.  This is fine, we like helva.  But this was baked in an oven, it melts and forms a chewy crust on top, was then sprinkled with chopped nuts.  Absolutely delicious.  So, a question.  Has anyone else come across this dessert?
