not sure if i spelt this right but does anyone have a recipe for an arab cake called basboosa???
it's really tasty, very rich and typically dripping with syrup/something sweet anyway;-D
i had it in an arab restaurant once + i would love to make it for my parents (you know us pakis and our sweet tooths;-D ;-D)

|As salamu alaykum Amatullah,|
What temperature should we use? How long do you think golden brown takes? Jazakum Allah Khair
As salamu alaykum

4 cups of sugar may be too sweet for some ppl. When we make the syrup we usually use 2 cups of sugar and a couple of table spoons of honey with two cups of water and it is still quite sweet.
If you don't have rose water you can always use vanilla.
Bake it at 350
And I believe the semolina flour has to be of medium grain..not the fine or the coarse kind.
