The syrup receipes quantities was wrong.When made as written it made the Baklava much to soupy after it had stood over night.Good otherwise.
The nut proportion was incredibly high. Maybe subbing in something else such as coconut or what you like could balance it a bit. Also, would make a note about adding honey after allowing the simmered sauce to cool below a temp before adding that will allow honey's natural healthful properties to thrive. Boiling kills much of it, other than its sweetness.The syrup amount looked about twice as much as needed for a 10 by 14 pan's worth of food.
I've never written a review for anything, but this was so good that I had to review it. This is by far the best Baklava I've ever had. It helps to have to people making it. One to lay the phyllo in the pan and one to butter the phyllo. I've been asked to take this many places! Make it exactly as written and you won't be disappointed.
The only thing I would change is that I would cut the sryup in half. It made my baklava juciy on the botton and I let it sit over night. It was to much.
LOVE this recipe!!! You don't think that baklava would be easy to make but this is fairly simple, time consuming maybe because of all the buttery layers, but it is so worth it!!!!
I would definitely make this recipe over and over! I have made 3 times and every time it's a hit! I think the time is a little off though. It takes me about 2 - 2.5 hours because of buttering every layer of phyllo dough, but it's well worth it!
