I got this recipe from an Egyptian couple. I made it for our Egyptian Night at Guides and it disappeared in minutes. I also made it for our District meeting (a meeting for the Guiders in our District - same as a Service unit meeting, etc.), and I have been asked to include the recipe with the minutes to the meeting!
Simmer ingredients until slightly thickened and light yellow in color.
(I have now made this recipes 3 times and have learned from it!)
My recipe called for much less sugar, more lemon and was very good! Not so sweet and more lemony. My girls LOVED this recipe! Also a note I read in the cookbook -- these cake-type recipes are not typically eaten for dessert, but as a between-meals snack.
1-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1 lemon
Boil all ingredients over high heat, stirring constantly,
until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until
mixture registers 220 degrees on a candy thermometer. Cool
Hope this helps!
