      I am Algerian so this recipe is definately a keeper, it is delicious. The only think I would do is add more syrup because it tends to dry quickly, original basboussa is supposed to be very moist and sticky.

      Yet another wonderful recipe from Um Safia! Delicious, moist, not overly sweet - and very delicate. Yum!

      This is delicious! I made a couple small changes - didn't have sunflower oil so I used canola. For the syrup, I used 2 cups water and 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup honey (because the ones I had always had that honey taste), with 2 tsp orange flower water and the lemon juice. I made for a party but I want to keep it for myself :)

      DH and DD1 both say this is good and I made it for my FIL`s dewaniya (male gathering) and I'm sure it will get eaten up. It is a nice change from their regular favourite, Cream of Wheat Cake (Basboosa) as this one has a cakier texture and the lemon zest. I did not use all the 'asl' syrup as the men don't like too much sweetness. In fact I made a batch of Syrian Phyllo Sweet With Qashta (Ward El Sham) with the leftover syrup. I use Cedar brand semolina (light coloured, not durum semolina used for making pasta), the shredded coconut I had was sweetened so I left out most of the sugar, I used mainly canola oil and the rest unrefined sunflower oil as I was afraid it would have too much of a sunflower taste, alcohol free vanilla from the health food shop, just 1 tbs orange blossom water, plus the rest of the ingredients. I cut them into diamond shapes to look very nice masha Allah. I may make this again as a change from the usual. Made for Welcome to Algeria!
