One of my favourite sweet treats has always been Baklava. I haven't found too many places in my area that have homemade Baklava, so every once in a while I make a trip to my local Greek Market to pick up a couple of pieces of this delicious pastry. Recently, I got it in my head that I would try to make some Baklava myself, so I started looking up recipes online and realized it really isn't as difficult as I thought it may have been. I wanted to use a recipe that (hopefully) was authentic, and I settled on this one. Below are the photos I took of this adventure.

Chopped almonds (instead of walnuts), sugar, cloves and cinnamon.

First layer of almond mix on top of buttered phyllo sheets.

It has been baked and is cooling off before I add the honey syrup.

It's cooling off after I added the honey syrup. I put it in the fridge for 1/2 hour and then it was ready to eat!


  1. My family is greek, and my yiaya always has a massive heap of baklava in her fridge. Over the years I've started to find it's a little bit too sweet for me. Have you tried kataifi?? It's super delish - quite similar to baklava
