Hah, it’s been a while since we posted a dessert!
A new favorite dish from the Egyptians?
Sweet and savory Egyptian food!
I’m excited to share with you my version of sweet and sweet Egyptian food, as well as a quick and easy way to make it at home.
This is a great dessert for your next picnic or dinner out.
Let’s get started.
Ingredients: 3 cups almond flour 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup frozen water 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice 1 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro 1 teaspoon dried mint, minced 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, minced (optional) 3 tablespoons butter 1/3 cup heavy cream, plus more for glaze 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1/5 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional, but you can also use a pinch of salt) Directions: In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, brown sugar, salt, and olive oil.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the water, lemon juice, parsley, and mint.
Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Add butter and heavy cream and whisk until well combined.
Add the lemon juice and mix well.
Pour into prepared bowl.
Spread the glaze over the top and drizzle with cinnamon or thyme.
Bake for about 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
If you want your dessert to taste more like Egyptian food than regular soft serve, add a few spoonfuls of water or cream to the glazed dessert to add some sweetness.
Let cool before serving.
Recipe Notes: I recommend using fresh-squeezed lemon juice as the glazing ingredient.
I used a few drops of fresh lemon juice for the sweetener in the glazier, but any fresh lemon should work well.
If you don’t have any lemon juice on hand, you can use a lemon zest, or even fresh lemon.
Also, if you are trying to use fresh milk, you might want to add a tablespoon or two of water, along with some sugar, to get the right consistency.
