    Annacia's Note:

    Found on I have seen elswhere that it is common to Oman. I'm posting it here because I want to try it soon. I'm guessing at the yield, the photo on the recipe shows it in 4 pieces made in different sized and shaped molds.

      Skipping the stars, gf. Wow, what an EPIC disaster. Important notes for the next person to try - please DO weigh the flour!!! The 2nd sifting is even more important than the 1st - while heating, it clumps up. It took forever to brown (well, 20 - 25 minutes) - nothing, nothing, nothing, TAN! and eventually darker which i thought was as 'golden brown' as I was gonna get. NOTE! STOP at tan!!! When I added the cooked & sifted flour to the water, it turned to a very dark brown mess - the color of a molasses cookie. I think because i didn't weigh my flour, i had too much which resulted in the solid land mass in my pan. :o I hoped adding the condensed milk would loosen it up...nope. It also had a burned smell & a smokey flavor. Tasted kinda like cigarette smoke. :( A lot of time & ingredients into the garbage. SO, please somebody take these notes & try for yourself! Please come back with a better review for Annacia!! Sorry, hun. Made for Exploring Oman 1/13.
