Updated: Mar 11

  • Baklava is of Turkish origin, but Serbs picked up this delicacy, and it is regularly made on the eve of New Year's holidays or some other celebrations. My mom's old recipe, including mine, is always phenomenal when I make it, and everyone asks me how good this recipe is. You know that baklava is made with a lot of sugar, but there is not that much of it in this recipe, which is why this baklava is extra tasty and delicious. Try this recipe, I believe that once you make it, you will always make it that way. I always stick to this recipe because it’s fantastic!!! Follow recipe.

Baklava procedure:
  1. First make baklava syrup, mix all ingredients and cook for 15–20 minutes.

Then put the second crust, put the filling and then just sprinkle the blended walnuts with 4 tablespoons or more. Then repeat each crust with the same filling + walnuts, and count that there is one crust left for the very top of the baklava where nothing is placed.

  5. When you get to the end, last crust cut with a slit knife the baklava into cubes or triangles, before baking.
