Basbousa

IMG_1038

The following recipe is a middle eastern cake/bar cookie called Basbousa. This dessert is easy to make as well as being a little different than the average cake. It is made with semolina which can be found in the baking section of most grocery stores. A light and sweet syrup and toasted almonds top this tasty and different cake!

 

Ingredients

2 cups semolina- found in the baking section of most grocery stores

3/4  cup white sugar

1/4 cup softened butter

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp. baking powder

20 almonds, blanched and toasted

Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

lemon juice-optional

rose water- optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix  Semolina, sugar and butter. Add baking powder, yogurt and milk and mix well. You can also add 1/2 cup of coconut if you like. My kids like it plain but it is tasty with coconut. Spread in a round cake pan. Flatten this out as much as possible.
