A famous dessert originating from Middle East, made of semolina and drenched in sugar syrup.
Am looking for Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake Recipe over the net. There are various recipes for making it, some used coconut or ground almond and richer one with heavy dose of butter and eggs.
After checking so many recipes, decided to give this recipe a try. This Eggless Basbousa / Semolina Cake recipe uses no eggs and least sugar for the syrup.
Used a whisk to cream the butter and sugar together. Need not beat until fluffy, just until well combined.
This Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake does not have a cake like batter but rather a thick mass of dough.
Am running short of whole almonds so I used almond flakes for topping.
We enjoyed a slightly chewy texture imparted by semolina, sticky and moistness by the syrup. It is much better the day after since the lemon flavored syrup will be completely absorbed. We plan to make this wonderful Eggless Basbousa/Eggless Semolina Cake again for our family gathering.
