This Egyptian dessert is like a bread pudding with tasty little bites of nuts and raisins - delicious and easy!
Servings: 3 approx
- ½ sheet puff pastry 123g (can also use ready-baked)
- 2 tablespoon raisins
- 2 tablespoon coconut flakes
- 2 tablespoon pistachios roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoon walnuts roughly chopped
- ½ cup whole milk 120ml
- ½ cup heavy cream 120ml double cream
- 3 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
- ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
If cooking pastry from raw dough, prepare the pastry according to package instructions - generally put it on a lightly oiled baking sheet/tray and bake for 15 minutes at 400F/200C. Remove from oven and allow to cool enough to handle - you can do this ahead of time.
Preheat oven to 400F/200C (if not already on for pastry).
Break up the pastry into roughly bite-size pieces. Put the pieces in a baking dish (approx 8x6in/20x15cm) and sprinkle over the raisins, coconut, pistachio and walnut pieces.
Mix together the milk, cream, condensed milk and cinnamon. Pour the mixture over the pastry and nut mixture. Try to press the pastry down in to the liquid a little, or else toss the pieces so most if not all take in some of the liquid.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until the liquid is bubbling up slightly and the top is gently brown. You can eat this both warm or cooled.
