Sweet Lebanese Atayef



  • 1 Cup of flour
  • 1 Cup of milk
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate de soda


  • 1 Cup of walnut
  • 2 tbsp of granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp rose water
  • Orange blossoms for decoration


  • 1 Cup of sugar
  • 1 Cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of rose water


  1. Prepare the syrup first. Put all the ingredients in a small pan and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Put the pan on the hob at a high temperature and stir from time to time until the syrup is no longer watery. This will take around 10 minutes, leave aside to cool down.
  2. Whisk the flour, milk and yeast together and leave aside for 2 hours.
  3. When ready, use a big non-stick pan to cook the katayef. Heat the pan first and then reduce temperature to minimum.
  4. Sprinkle the bicarbonate de soda to the runny dough and mix.
  5. Take 2 big table spoons and pour in the pan in small circles to make a small size Katayef. Fry the katayef on one side until golden, remove and leave to cool down.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare the filling, wash the walnuts and put in a blender, add sugar and rose water, blend until smooth.
  7. Fill each katayef with one spoonful of walnuts and close the 2 sides together making a cone shape.
  8. When ready to serve the katayef sprinkle one teaspoon of syrup, and some Orange blossoms and serve.
  9. You can also deep fry the katayef if you wish and once out sprinkle with the syrup.
