Sponge Cake Baklava Recipe Greek Style Pudding? Whaaat?
After showing you how to make the Authentic Greek Baklava, I decided to get a bit more creative and show you how to turn a classic Baklava into a sponge cake (like a pudding). It’s easier to make than the usual Baklava as you only have to deal with 2 layers of phyllo only. The filling is made in the way we make a cake. And once it all bakes beautifully together, it gets soaked in a warm syrup. So the basic difference it has with a classic Baklava is, that it’s much softer on the inside with a spongy like texture.
Grab Your Cake Pan And Let’s Make The Best Dessert Ever!
Me and my ring cake pan, took our relationship to a whole new level as we seem to create a lot of crazy stuff together lately (take for example my Stuffed Apples With Semolina Cream). But the most amazing thing we created so far, is this truly beautiful, “Can’t say no to” dessert.
In order to explain how delicious it tastes, I’ll tell you that my brother ate half of it, on his own overnight (and luckily for me, he doesn’t read my posts). It’s simply DIVINE. I myself am a huge fan of Baklava. In fact, it’s my favorite dessert. What does Baklava have, that other desserts don’t? Answer: EVERYTHING! It’s so crispy because of the phyllo, and so crunchy due to the nuts, it has this unique honey-sweetness, and it’s packed with all the warm flavors and aromas of cinnamon and cloves. It’s pretty addictive.
I could eat Baklava in any form of dessert (as long as it truly resembles a Baklava) And that’s how I ended up taking my cake pans help and create this Sponge Cake Baklava Recipe that everyone goes WOW when they see it. Even I myself was amazed when I took it off the cake pan (not to mention that it broke my nose).
Perfect For Get-Togethers And The Christmas Table
It’s the perfect dessert to serve when you have lots of people coming over for dinner. Not sure what to make in order to satisfy everyone? This Baklava Recipe is your answer. Everyone loves baklava and they will love you too for making it.
As for serving it, you can add a spoonful of Homemade whipped cream on top of each piece (to add a hint of airy lightness). Or you can top it with some bitter-sweet Chocolate sauce (to create a nice contrast to the sweetness of the syrup). And since Christmas is coming, you can serve it decorated like a Christmas wreath.
I personally topped it with some fresh whipping cream and drizzled some honey and extra nuts on it. As well as some ground cinnamon (which I love). Anyways, enjoy!
