Happy national baklava day! (👇recipe!!!👇) If you have never tried this indulging treat🤤(which is hard to believe) then you really should... Like... RIGHT NOW!
On the other hand, if you are someone who just LOVES baklava (and I know you are)😋 maybe you should try and make it your self. It is a very easy process, and I've decided to share it with you🤗
Here's the recipe for baklava:
✔️500 g ground walnuts (or any other nuts you like)
✔️500 g (1 pack) phyllo pastry (10-12 sheets)
✔️700 g sugar
✔️500 ml water (+more for drizzling before baking)
✔️Juice of 1 lemon
✔️1 cup Neutral vegetable oil (or melted ghee or butter) (+more if needed)
1⃣Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F)
2⃣Oil the deep baking pan (9x13") and start making the baklava layers. Fold one sheet of phyllo in half and place it in the pan. Brush it (or drizzle) with some oil and cover with a handful of ground walnuts. Fold the second phyllo sheet in half and place over the walnuts (the folded edge facing the other side), brush with some oil and a handful of walnuts.
3⃣Repeat the process until you have no more walnuts or phyllo sheets. The last should be phyllo sheet.
4⃣Cut the baklava into the desired shape, give it one final drizzle of oil, and a little splashing (drizzling) of water to prevent the final layer of phyllo from banding. Place into the preheated oven (180°C /350°F) to bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
5⃣While baking, combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. When it starts to boil, turn the heat down to a gentle simmer, and let it simmer like that until the baklava is baked.
6⃣When you take the baklava out of the oven, add the lemon juice to the sugar syrup, stir, and pour over entire baklava. Set it aside until all the sugar syrup is absorbed, and baklava has cooled down completely.
7⃣Serve and enjoy!
