Coconut Halva Recipe


  

Ingredients

1. 1/2 cup unsalted butter

2. 3/4 cup Sugar or turbinate sugar

3. 1/2 cup unbleached flour

4. 1 1/4 cups semolina

5. 1 1/2 cups coconut, grated

6. 3/4 cup milk or almond milk

7. 1 teaspoon baking powder

8. 1 teaspoon almond extract

9. Handful whole almonds, to decorate

Directions

1. Prepare the simple syrup first by placing the Sugar, water, and

lemon juice into a pan, stirring to mix and bring to boil. Simmer for

about 6-8 minutes until the syrup has thickened just a little. Stir in

rosewater if using. Allow syrup to cool then chill.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a saucepan melt the butter. Add the

Sugar, flour, semolina, coconut, milk, baking powder and almond

extract, mix thoroughly. Do not allow to burn.

3. Pour the mixture into a buttered 8" square baking pan, flatten the

top and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden.

4. Remove halva from oven and cut diagonally so that you have

diamond shaped portions. Prick the cake all over using a toothpick.

Pour the chilled simple syrup evenly over the top and decorate with a

whole almond on each diamond shaped piece. Serve hot or at room

temperature.
