Ramadan is a month that Muslims fast from food most of the day, yet it’s also known for its food traditions especially desserts, here are some of the most common desserts in Ramadan.
Orange blossom and date pudding
The recipe is supremely flexible and is just as good with almond, soya or coconut milk if you are avoiding dairy. It can be served warm or cold, depending on the season and your preference.
Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey. It is characteristic of the cuisines of the Levant, the Caucasus, Balkans, Maghreb, and of Central and West Asia.
Classic Qatayef with Nuts
A Middle Eastern favorite and the ultimate Ramadan treat! Made from yeasted pancakes stuffed with nuts, fried to crunchy, golden perfection, then doused in a thick sugar syrup.
A not-so-authentic cheese kunafa made with everyone’s favorite mozzarella cheese! Crunchy shredded pastry filled with gooey mixture of mozzarella and a secret ingredient that keeps the cheese from hardening even after it cools. A rose and orange blossom water scented sugar syrup, sweetens and perfumes this scrumptious Middle Eastern favorite.
