I have never had Basbousa before so I don't know what it is suppose to taste like. DH & I thought that this tasted ok but it wasn't very impressive. Sorry I couldn't rate it higher. Made for Ramadan Tag
I thought this was pretty good. The only thing was I had baked it in a pan that was too big and it come out thinner than what I had anticipated which is purely my fault for not following the directions. I used desicated coconut and it had a nice coconutty flavor to it, but next time I think I will use shredded coconut. I also used regular margarine and white sugar. Thanks for the yummy recipe.
