Confetti is back in action! It has been a long time and I have seriously missed cooking, baking and blogging! It is good to be back, and for this occasion I baked one of the most famous Lebanese cakes: sfouf.
I don’t know what sfouf means, but it is a delicious and special dessert. My aunt bakes it very often and when I was last visiting Beirut, I took the recipe from her and have wanted to try it since. It’s an easy recipe and it worked out perfectly fine. Sfouf has a sweet and earthy taste, very nice for breakfast with a cup of cafe au lait.
– 4 cups flour
– 2 cups sugar
– 1 cup oil
– 2 cups milk

– 3 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
2. Mix all ingredients together except the almonds.
3. Pour the batter in a 20x30cm baking pan. Grease the pan beforehand if necessary. Place half almonds on top in rows.
4. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
5. Cool before cutting it in cubes.
