Basbousa (dessert/cake) - New Pics added!

Post by Aisha on Thu Apr 30, 2009 6:12 pm

salaam

Basbousa

Ingredients:

2 cups semolina
1 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup sugar
1 large spoonful butter melted OR 1/4 cup oil
2-3 teaspoons baking powder
vanilla
1 egg
2 tins sterilised cream ( such as Puck ) or if you prefer 2 x 120 ml pots of plain yogurt
nuts to decorate.

Syrup for pouring over basbousa AFTER cooking :
2 cups sugar
2 cups water (1.5 cups of both sugar and water is also sufficient)
squeeze of lemon juice
orange blossom water / rosewater 1 or 2 tablespoons.
(Boil the syrup ingredients until desired thickness of syrup is reached.)

Preparation:
Mix all ingredients together ( I like to mix the dry ingredients together first ), then pour or spoon into greased tin. Mark into squares or diamond shapes and place a nut into each shape.


Temp. 170 - 180 moderate oven until golden brown (approx 20 - 30 mins).



Pour over syrup & allow to cool before removing from tin.



InshaAllah enjoy!

I made this today and took some pics which you can see in my recipe posted above 8)
Today I used yogurt (2 x 120ml pots) instead of 2 tins of heavy cream. I also found that 1.5 cups of syrup was plenty. Perhaps slightly healthier than the heavy cream version though still high in sugar of course.

WaSalaamu alaikum,
Aisha

Sorry Umm Mussab - I did not notice your query until now.
What's the size on the tin you used? Did you use fine or coarse semolina.
Regarding the size of the baking tin i usually use this size:
11 x 7 x1.1/2 inch baking tin = 28cm x 18cm x 4cm baking tin

You can use a smaller tin if you want the basbousa to be thicker and more spongey. The tin I used in the pic is actually a Lasagne tin Smile

Regarding the quality of the semolina then finer may be better though I don't usually consider that. Smile

Dear Nadia I am very proud of you mashaAllah :heart:
Alhamdulilah that it was a success flower3

waSalaamu alaikum,
Aisha

ok, I've just taken out my first basbousa from the oven... I'm not happy with the result... maybe 'cause it was a glass tin... and graised with oil??? I'll taste it and let u know insha'Allah Smile
