Coconut Basboosa

This is not your average basboosa, it is a bit thicker but that is the magic of the basboosa (there are so many all being unique). This sweet, coconut filled dessert is perfect after any dinner especially with coffee. This is a traditional recipes served during Ramadan for Iftar. This taste amazing with qashta served on top. If your in an area that does not have qashta try Nestles heavy cream in your baking isle, it works just as well and taste better to me.

3 cups shredded coconut
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup semolina
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla

1. Grease 24 cm, 9 inch pan.

2. In a large mixing bowl beat sugar and eggs until light and fluffy, add butter, milk, vanilla stir with dry ingredients.

3. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Bake at preheated oven 350 F, for 30 minutes or until it golden brown.

Yields: 8 servings
