Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog post!
I am delighted to welcome you to my little space on the internet and to invite you to my home through my kitchen.
I didn’t start taking cooking seriously until very recently – nor did I ever think I’d be taking the time to share my recipes and tricks with people just like you online, but it’s been a great experience so far.
I’m so thankful for every single person who tests and enjoys my recipes; you have no idea how much you encourage me to keep pottering around in my little kitchen and not to give up – even if it is difficult at times to manage it all as well as normal life.
Well! I think I’ve said enough already!
A Delicious Lebanese Dessert
Today, I want to share one of my favourite recipes with you. A recipe called “Mouhallabieh” and it’s a Lebanese dessert. It’s super quick and easy to put together, and pretty much guaranteed to be a hit for whoever it is you’re preparing it for.
This recipe is essentially a milk-based custard, flavored with orange blossom water, it’s the perfect dessert to prepare for when you don’t want to spend hours baking, or when you don’t want to prepare something overly rich.
Ingredients for 4 servings
- 300ml milk
- 200ml liquid full-fat cream
- 60g of cornstarch
- 60g of normal sugar
- 2 teaspoons of orange blossom water
- Crushed pistachios, to decorate
1. Pour the milk & cream into a saucepan and stir over medium heat.
2. Add the sugar and the cornstarch and continue to stir.
3. Add the orange blossom water.
4. Continue to stir the liquid until the mixture thickens, then pour into glasses.
5. Allow the mixture to cool in the fridge 2-4h.
6. Take out and garnish with crushed pistachios.
That’s it for this Lebanese dessert!
