'Garash cake' is found in most Bulgarians restaurants and cafes. Bulgarians love to meet at 'sladkarnizi' – sweet-shops - where coffee is served with a large array of different cakes, ice creams as well as cocktails.
The 'Garash' is the cake for excellence. Many other cakes came after that - fruit, chocolate, almond, coconut, etc.. - but it remains one of the most popular desserts and also the right one for special occasions. Not all Cafés offer a version worthy of its fame. That's why it's better to learn how to prepare it at home, where you usually bake it on the occasion of birthdays, most often in winter as it a high-calories treat to indulge it and a small piece is enough to fill you up.
