LEBANESE BAKLAWA RECIPE
Baklawa is a rich and sweet dessert using layers of filo and melted butter, filled with chopped nuts and held together with a sweet syrup.
The greek version of this dessert is Baklava, but we’re sharing a delicious Lebanese version (hence the spelling “Baklawa”) which anyone can make at home.
This yummy recipe was created by lovely Daniella Boutros, guest presenter on Network 10’s Studio 10 and creator of Buttercreme Lane, a high-end customised cupcake and cake shop in Canterbury NSW. (We’ve been blessed to have crossed paths with her on social media in recent months and we have an exciting collaboration coming up!)
But back to our baklawa …
ARE YOU SCARED OF FILO PASTRY ??
Daniella says DON’T BE! Her advice is to just work patiently, carefully, gently, basically toughen up and have a go!
