DIRECTIONS

  • To make the syrup: Peel the lemon with a potato peeler to get flat strips of peel.
  • Juice the lemon.
  • Bring the sugar, water, and lemon juice to a boil.
  • Throw in the rind of the lemon.
  • Boil until the lemon rind is hard or the mixture is a runny syrup consistency.
  • Add the honey.
  • Set aside while you make the basboosa.
  • Mix the semolina, flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  • Add the oil and mix until all the batter is well blended.
  • Grease a large cookie sheet tray (10 x 16 inches).
  • Add the milk just before you are about to bake.
  • Dot the mixture into the greased pan by spoonfuls.
  • Level the mixture with your hand (dipped in milk).
  • Shake the tray to level.
  • Bake for 1/2 hour at 350 degrees.
