Iffet, molases dedigin pekmez mi yoksa nar eksisi mi? Kandil simitleri tuzlu olduguna gore nar eksisi diye tahmin ediyorum. Ben bunlari daha once denedigimi sanmiyorum. Cok guzel gorunuyorlar.

Blog'umu neden ekleyemedigini bilemiyorum. Daha once boyle bir sorunla karsilasmadim. Umarim bi dahaki denemede basarili olur.

Nihal,
Benim bu tarifte kullandigim molasses aslinda uzum pekmezi de degil nar eksisi de. Sanirim Amerika da her markette bulunabilecek seker pekmezi.
Uzum pekmezi de kullanilabilir tabi ki.
Kandil simidine o hafif gevrekligi veren ve yerken agzinda kalan bellirli-belirsiz seker tadini veren bu pekmez.
Bu arada birkac kere daha denedim ama blogunu listeye eklesem de acilamiyor:(
