Easy Honey Baklava - Vegan version included
Happy Deepavali! Wishing all my readers a glowing Diwali with peace, joy and prosperity. A permutation from the traditional indian sweets to this classic Baklava. A mediterranean heavenly nut-filled pastry is a classic Greek rich dessert pastry.
This will be the most sought after sweet that you will prefer homemade than store bought ones. Love the perfect sweetness that complemented with the cinnamon and the mellow lemony flavor. Baklava is layers of thin buttery phyllo filled with rich blend of nuts, baked and soaked in raw honey. I have tried different shapes and the rolled baklava is so much fun to make.
Baklava is drenched in hot honey which allows the layers of the phyllo pastry to stay crisp unlike the usual simple sugar syrup version. However the natural sweetness of the raw honey was subtle, the trick was to add just 2 tablespoons of unbleached sugar to the honey syrup with no flavor compromise. Let's try and taste this truly delicious and heavenly Baklava!
