This is a variation on a popular Greek dessert which is a firm baked cake covered with sugar syrup. The syrup is allowed to seep into the cake for a few hours (preferably overnight) and it sweetens and moistens it. Note that this recipe uses breadcrumbs instead of flour and is useful when you want to bake something but have run out of flour.
