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 Nestle make)
nuts to decorate.

Syrup for pouring over basbousa AFTER cooking :

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
squeeze of lemon juice
orange blossom water / rosewater 1 or 2 tablespoons.

Boil until desired thickness of syrup is reached. 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 will try to take some pics next time I make this inshaAllah)
