How to cook

Prepare nuts

  • In a bowl, toss the chopped nuts and ground cinnamon evenly.

Prepare honey sauce

  • In a saucepan, combine water, sugar, honey & vanilla extract.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let the syrup cool.

Prepare baklava layers

  • On the buttered pan, lay 2 sheets of filo pastry sheets (make sure to cut them to the pan’s size).
  • Then, butter the top sheet evenly.
  • Repeat this 4 more times until you have 8 layered sheets in total.
  • Sprinkle the nut mixture on the pastry sheets.
  • Then layer another 2 filo pastry sheets above and coat with butter.
  • Repeat this once more.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut your pastry into diamond shapes all the way to the bottom of the pan.

Start baking

  • Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  • Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 50 minutes until the baklava is golden and crisp.
  • Finally, remove the baklava from the oven and immediately scoop the honey sauce over it.
  • Let it cool and it’s ready to serve!
