How do you like your basbosa? I like mine packed with almonds🤗.

Basbosa literally means gave a kiss because it’s sweet like a kiss🙈😍 A middle eastern dessert made from semolina flour, coconut, and almonds, then drizzled with sugar syrup🤗 best served with Arabic coffee.
Ingredients and Directions:

[ ] Mix the oil and semolina together well before adding the rest .

[ ]After mixing the semolina and oil add the following and mix well.
[ ] 1/2 cup sugar
[ ] 1/3 yoghurt
[ ] 1/3 coconut
[ ] 1 tsp baking powder

[ ] Put the mix in a sprayed baking pan, tap the pan, and equally distribute the mix with a spatula.
[ ] Add Almonds on top and press lightely
[ ] put in middle rack at 350F ~30min until edges are golden/brown then grill for 2 mins and watch it constantly to prevent burning
