      This Middle Eastern Basbousa Recipe is another one of my favorite experiments. I love trying out new recipes after my travels abroad and when I returned from my trip to Egypt, I definitely had to give this one a try.

      A traditional sweet cake made from semolina flour and flavored with coconut, and an orange flower water or a rose water syrup. An extra sweet dessert to serve at a dinner party and although it is very traditional, this cake always sits very well with everyone’s sweet spot!
