How to make Basbousa/ Revani/ Hareesa !! A Turkish delight !!

  1. In a large mixing bowl add the semolina, flour , fresh and descicated coconuts, baking powder, melted butter, egg, milk, sugar , saffron and give it a good stir until well combined.
  2. Now pour this into a greased pan and bake @180°c / 350°f for 25 to 30 mins or until slightly golden.
  3. While it is baking start off with the sugar syrup.In a pan add the sugar and water and bring this to a gentle boil.No need of a string consistency here.
  4. Next add the saffron and lime juice to the syrup, stir well and turn off the heat.Keep this covered until use.
  5. Once the semolina cake is baked to golden, pour this syrup over the cake, while its still hot.
  6. Cool this syrup drenched cake over the counter top and slice according to u r preference either diagonally or squares.. Lastly garnish with slices of Almonds and serve !!
  7. Moist , soft and coconutty semolina cake the Basbousa is ready to hog !!

My Tip:

You can always use just the decicated coconut in the recipe, i added the fresh one as it has its own sweetness and much more flavor than descicated but one alteration just increase the sugar level in the syrup to 1.5 cups of sugar and 1.5 cups of water ..
