Μετά από αρκετό καιρό απουσίας μου λόγω διαφόρων υποχρεώσεων -πέρασε σχεδόν ένας μήνας-, επιστρέφω με μια γλυκιά ανάρτηση. Ένα κέικ βανίλιας, με κομματάκια σοκολάτας. Αγαπημένο, εύκολο στα υλικά, απλό και γρήγορο στην εκτέλεση του.

This is a traditional Greek dish that we make a lot around here, especially after Easter period. I remember my grandmother serving it to us on Easter Sunday actually and this is her recipe. It is a very tasty and easy dessert, with simple ingredients and one of my personal favorites.

Semolina halvah, with roasted almonds and cinnamon.

600 gr. semolina

300 gr. olive oil

150 gr. peeled almonds

For the syrup:

1 kilo sugar

zest from 1 lemon

juice from half a lemon

cinnamon & extra almonds to decorate

First, prepare the syrup. In a pot, mix the sugar with 1 1/2 kilo water. Add the lemon zest and the juice from half a lemon and stir well. Let it boil in medium to high heat, for a few minutes and let it rest.

In another pot, add the oil and the almonds and let them fry until golden in medium to high heat. Add the semolina and stir well with a wooden spoon, until brown. Add the syrup, mix well and turn off the heat. Cover your mixture with a towel for a few minutes, until it is homogenised and tight enough.

Transfer the halvah into a large cake ring or use smaller ones to make individual pieces and let it cool down for 10 minutes. Trasfet it to a large plate, sprinkle some cinnamon and extra almonds on top and serve.

Enjoy, Anthea.

Foodie Photoshoot || Butter Biscuits

the salty biscotti food photography blog

Last night we received on behalf of our new baby born Thanos, a beautiful basket, filled with lots of pretty things by our good friend Vaso. Among the treasures she put inside, she offered us those delicious homemade butter biscuits.

I could not let the opportunity and not photograph them, cause I find them so pretty. I am so into cookies and biscuits as you already know but I do not have the recipe yet. I requested it though and she will send it to me as soon as possible.

I hope you all have a sweet day!!
