The November sweet was hosted by Joumana from www.tasteofbeirut.com - and she made a wonderful choice!
I did it!!! My first challenge for the Walima Cooking group. At first I was definately skeptical regarding this recipe....the bottom is bread....the top has no sugar in it, hmmmm doesn't sound too tempting. But checking the web and asking friends of Lebanese heritage I understood that this recipe is a winner. And it was. The sweet syrup poured over the bread with a wonderful hint of orange blossom water made this such a wonderfully typical middle eastern dessert.
I took it to my nephew's Bar Mitzva brunch and the dessert vanished way before the other desserts...:-)
This is definately a recipe I will make over and over again!!
I only wish that through our recipes maybe peace will prevail between our countries. AMEN!!!

Walima November cooking challenge will represent the Lebanese Cuisine. Talking about Lebanon which comes from Laban or the high White Mountain, this also reflects our food and what a coincidence that both recipes have dairy
