Why Our Baklava Is the Perfect Dessert for You

January 5, 2021

Many people often struggle to find a dessert with the perfect balance of sweetness, taste, and texture. In most cases, people make compromises by opting for a dessert that offers at least two of the three features we’ve mentioned, but you’ll very rarely stumble upon one that offers all three. 

However, baklava is one of those rare treats that are quite simple to make, and both the flavor(s) and texture are unique and incredibly delicious. If you’ve never had the opportunity to try baklava and you have a sweet tooth, this is the perfect moment to give it a go! Rest assured, you’ll be blown away by the blend of different aromas, and more importantly – you won’t believe how easy it is to make the baklava dessert. 

What Is Baklava Dessert?

Baklava is made of layers of filo dough with cinnamon-scented walnuts in the middle. After it’s baked, honey is poured over it for the filo to soak up. It’s quite a sweet dessert, but as long as you use good quality honey, your taste buds will be exposed to brilliant crunchy texture and delicious taste. 

The best thing about baklava is how long it can be kept at room temperature or stored in the freezer. For instance, you can easily keep a batch of baklava at room temperature for a week without it going bad. As far as keeping it in the fridge goes, it’s safe to keep it for ten days or up to two weeks, but keep in mind that the crunchiness and texture, in general, are going to deteriorate with time. In simpler words, the longer you store it, the drier the dough will be. 

How to Make Baklava?

Now that we know what is baklava made from, it’s time to get an idea of how to make it. 

  • Ingredients (baklava)
  • 16 Oz walnuts 
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves 
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon 
  • 16 Oz of filo dough (thawed)
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt 
  • 1 cup of butter (melted)
  • Ingredients (syrup)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup of honey (preferably high-quality)
  • 1 strip orange peel
  • 1 strip lemon peel
  • Baklava Recipe Baking Instructions 

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Place walnuts, salt, cloves, and cinnamon in a blender or food processor and chop everything together. 

Put eight layers of filo dough into the pan, brushing each one with melted butter. Once you get to the eighth layer, add about a fifth of your walnut mixture and spread it evenly. Subsequently, add another five layers, brushing each one with butter, and then add another layer of nuts. A good rule of thumb to follow is to start with eight layers and end with eight layers while using five layers for every filling. Essentially, the sequence should look like 8-5-5-5-5-8. 

Bake the baklava for about 50 minutes, and let it cool down for 15 minutes. While the baklava is baking, toss the syrup ingredients in a saucepan, bring it to a boil, and then reduce it to a simmer for about 5 minutes. 

Once the baklava has cooled down, pour the hot syrup all over it and leave it for at least 8 hours.
