Baklava adalah salah makanan middle east, dengan rasa manis. Di cafe cafe sepanjang Sidney Rd, tak jauh dari rumah kami, banyak ditemukan makanan ini.
Bbrp waktu lalu (bulan puasa tepatnya) saya coba bikin sendiri. Gampang sekali, hanya butuh sedikit kesabaran untuk mengoles helaian phyllo pastry yg benar2 tipis itu.

resepnya saya ambil dari


1 pound chopped mixed nuts (saya pake pistachio dan almond)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 package phyllo pastry
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 175 C . Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish
  2. Toss together cinnamon and nuts. Unroll phyllo and cut whole stack in half to fit the dish. Cover phyllo with a damp cloth while assembling the baklava, to keep from drying out.
  3. Place two sheets (saya pake 4 lembar) of phyllo in bottom of prepared . Brush generously with butter. sprilngkle 2 to 2 tablespoons of nut mixture on top. Repeat layers until all ingredients are used., ending with about 6 sheet of phyllo. using sharp knife, cut baklava (all the way trough to teh bottom of the dish).
  4. Bake in preheated oven 50 minutes, until golden and crisp
  5. While baklava is baking, combine sugar and water in small saucepan over medium heat and bring to boil. Stir in honey, vanilla and lemon zest, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the baklava from the oven and immediately spoon the syrup over it. Let cool completely before serving
