Baklawa (pronounced bahk-LAY-wa or even little bit-LAY-wa, and in some cases: little bit-LAY-wee) may be the Lebanese pastry of phyllo, clarified butter, nuts, and flower drinking water very simple syrup. Lebanese baklawa differs in taste than Greek or some Turkish baklavas. Baklawa is built in a number of sizes and shapes, but do-it-yourself baklawa is often rolled or layered and Slice into diamonds. Most of the baklawa bakers I have recognised prepare the different elements of the pastry upfront, to make sure that on baking working day baklawa is principally an assembly job of phyllo, nuts, cutting, buttering, baking, [smelling the aroma] and drenching in syrup. The website end. Oh, and feeding on.
