- 3 eggs
- 1 glass of water Milk
- 1 water glass measure of oil
- 1 tablespoon of grape vinegar
- 1 packet of baking powder
- 5.5-6 cups flour
- 6 glasses of water
- 5 cups of sugar
- 1-2 drops of lemon juice
- 300 grams of walnut kernels
To open the meringues:
- 1 cup of wheat starch
- 300 grams of butter
You should make the syrup before the baklava so that it cools completely. Mix sugar and water in a saucepan until boiling. Stop stirring when it reaches boiling point. Boil for 20 minutes on medium heat and add the lemon juice 5 minutes before turning it off. Then let your syrup cool.
While your syrup is cooling, knead your dough ingredients well. Divide it into 30 meringues and cover them with a damp cloth so that the dough does not dry out. Process the walnuts and make sure they are not too small. Open the meringues to the size of a plate with the help of a rolling pin and make 10 layers by adding starch between them. You will get 3 layers of 10. Roll out your dough with a rolling pin. You can open 10 sheets of dough at the same time. You can also use the Signature Wooden Roller while rolling out your dough .
Lay your first phyllo on the tray and sprinkle walnuts on it. Do the other dough in the same way. Add the remaining walnuts and when you add the last phyllo, you can slice your baklava as you wish.
Then melt the butter and pour it all over the pan. Bake in the oven preheated to 180° until golden brown. When you take it out of the oven, you can wait 2 minutes for the first temperature to come out and add the cold syrup on it. Here, your homemade baklava that will decorate your iftar is ready to serve after resting for a few hours!
For the cake:
- 5 medium eggs
- 275 grams of sugar
- 185 gram one
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 grams of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 10 grams of butter to grease the baking dish
For the milk mixture:
- 720 ml of milk
- 400 ml full-fat cream
- 150 ml milk powder
For the caramel sauce:
- 125 grams brown sugar
- 15 grams of butter
- 200 ml of cream
- 120 ml milk
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Lightly oil your baking dish. Separate the egg whites and yolks and put the whites in a large mixing bowl and the yolks in another bowl. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites. You can mix it by using the mixer of Bernardo Ageta Multi Blender Set until you get a dense mixture like snow .
Add sugar and beat again with mixer for 5 more minutes. Beat the egg yolks with a mixer in a separate bowl. Then add the egg yolks to the egg whites slowly and mix with a mixer. Add vanilla extract as well.
Sift the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Then slowly add the eggs, this time mixing with a wooden spoon. Blend it from the bottom up and try not to lose its fluffiness.
When you get a smooth mixture, pour it into the baking tray. Try to spread the mixture evenly. If necessary, gently shake the tray to make it even. Check for doneness with a toothpick and if it is, take it out of the oven.
It takes time for the sugar to caramelize, so start preparing the caramel as soon as you put the cake in the oven. Put the butter and sugar in a pan. Wait patiently over low heat, without stirring, until this mixture turns brown. You can mix it after the sugar melts. Slowly add the milk and cream while mixing rapidly. Sugar may solidify at this stage, don’t worry, it will melt again. Blend until you get a caramel texture.
For the milky mixture, mix the milk and milk powder in a deep bowl until foamy. Add the cream and mix for another 2 minutes. You will not cook this mixture. When the cake has cooled, cut into squares. Also make about 4 holes in each square with a toothpick. Then pour the milk mixture evenly over the entire cake. The cake will absorb the milky mixture very quickly. There will most likely be bubbles on the cake. When all the milk mixture is absorbed, press down on them with a spoon or something similar. Finally, pour the caramel to cover the cake. Keep it in the refrigerator and when you are going to eat this delicious dessert that will decorate your iftar, take it out of the refrigerator and serve it cold.
- Bakes 1 liter
- 1 and a half tablespoons of rice flour
- 1 and a half tablespoons of cornstarch
- 3 egg yolks
- 100 g of cream
- Half tablespoon of vanilla
- 1 glass of sugar
- ½ cup almonds (peeled and crumbled)
- Peanuts, almonds for garnish
Put sugar and egg yolk in a saucepan and whisk. Take about a quarter of a glass of milk in a bowl and mix it with rice flour and cornstarch. Set this mixture aside. Add the rest of the milk to the pot and continue whisking. Put the pot on the fire and bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. When it starts to boil, add the rice flour and starch mixture and whisk.
After 3 minutes, add the peeled and crumbled almonds. After a few minutes, add the vanilla and cream. Don’t stop mixing until it’s done. When it’s thick enough, it’s time to take it off the stove. If it is not runny when you insert the spoon into it and take it out, it is cooked.
Remove from heat and pour into a pitcher so it’s easier to pour into small bowls or glasses. Then divide into individual small containers. Do not move these containers until the pudding has cooled. When it has cooled enough, decorate the cake with pistachios, whole almonds and raisins.
