Nummoora is a Lebanese pastry made from semolina soaked in a flavoured sugar-syrup and decorated with almonds.
Makes: 15 slices, Cooking time: approx 50 minutes.
2 ½ cups semolina
2 cups yoghourt
½ cup sugar
¼ lb (125g) butter, melted
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups cool Ater (syrup)
Mix together the semolina, yoghourt, sugar, butter and baking powder. Spread the mixture evenly in a well greased 25 cm (10 in) baking tray and bake in a 350oF (180oC) oven until cooked through and lightly brown on top – approx 50 minutes.
Remove from the oven and while still hot cut diagonal lines through the cooked mixture to make diamond-shaped slices, and then pour the cool Ater (syrup) over the top.
Serve hot or cold, either by itself or with Ushta or whipped cream.
Substituted ½ cup desiccated coconut for ½ cup of the semolina. Decorate each piece with an almond.
