Mini Basboosa Loaves

Before I moved to The Middle East I thought basboosa was only one recipe and they all were the same. However I quickly learned that saying basboosa is like saying pizza and just because it has the name does not mean any that you will ever make or try will be the same. I have posted quite a few basboosa recipes here at Ya Salam Cooking. This basboosa is a really simple and quick recipe and has a delicious fullness made by using fresh qashta. Crown or Nestle qashta are my favorite brands to use. I decided to make this batch in mini loaf pans and serve each with fresh fruit. I love serving everyone their only little plate of this sweet Arabic dessert; I mean just look how appealing it is. You can serve basboosa alone, with fruit like I have, whipped cream or even ice-cream.

3/4 cup milk
1 (100 gram) can qashta
1-1/3 cups sugar
2-1/2 cups semolina flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
Sugar syrup for topping

1.      Pre-heat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl add milk, qashta, sugar and vanilla. Mix well with a spoon. Add semolina, baking powder, butter and coconut mixing well with a hand mixer.

2.      Grease mini loaf pans well with sunflower oil. Carefully pour pans 1/2 way full. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and edges are light brown.

3. With a toothpick carefully prick holes on top of basboosa. Carefully pour sugar syrup on top.

Yields: 6 mini loaves
