IBasbousa, is a sweet treat made from semolina originating from the turkey. Had it the first time sometimes in 2016 and has been my go to whenever I need me a Turkish treat .
As a Nigerian , I only know semolina yo be used for three things . Ona and masa and semolina pancakes .
Therefore the first time I tried to make it was a disaster , so I asked a friend if she had a better recipe and she tagged me on an Instagram post . It was a very easy recipe.
Ingredients I used for my portion
0.6cup of Semolina
0.3 cups Sugar,salt,vanilla
1Eggs, 2tbsp of vegetable Ghee or butter
1/2teaspoon of Baking powder, 110gram of Yoghurt
2tbsp of Powdered milk ,cream
Four easy steps ;
Mix all dry ingredients together.Semolina,powdered milk,sugar,baking powder,vanilla powder,
Add in liquid ingredients, yoghurt, ghee,egg,cream . Whisk well and make sure there aren’t any clumps
Added some coconut flakes , because I can 🦋😌
Bake for about 30mins (time depends on your quantity and oven heat )
Next we make the syrup. Bring water to boil and add sugar. Stir until for about 5minutes.Pour into baked basbousa and let it soak .
Slice and enjoy 🦋
